RSW's Diary Comments

"Painted summer of 1946. Painted up at North Heath at the head of the N. Heath-Adamsville Road. Three simple elements, dirt road, tree group, wooded mountains in powerful simplicity—all pinned together by a red-roofed sugar house all under a 'cloud and blue' August sky. I think a fine canvas. The one ‘free’ summer painting I made in the Packard with Mark, his summer of 1946 when I hoped to paint a dozen. Made in 3 afternoons at the place, while Mark studied or read. Sold Sept 1st, 1947, from Manchester, Vt. Exhibition to Mrs. P.H.B. Frelinghuysen of Morristown, N. J. and given to her young grandson to be taken out to his new home in Arizona.”
