RSW's Diary Comments

"Painted in 1933. A sled tracked, woodland winter road, running through typical N. E. woods of pine, hemlock. laurel etc. Painted the winter before my last fire. (Painted from my big sled which takes wheelchair, easel, et al) on the wood road just back of Burnham's cottage (now March's cottage beside the shop property). One of my most perfectly painted canvases of which I am truly proud. Bought around 1934 by Mrs. Lucius Potter, 87 Franklin St. Greenfield, Mass. Always pleased it hung in one of Greenfield’s most beautiful homes. But when in 1946 Mrs. Lucius Potter from the studio bought The Green Bottle and the Barn (which see) I learned she had recently given it to a dear friend who fell in love with it, whose house is in Hartford, Ct, I believe. So I am not certain of its eventual ownership but data could probably be obtained from Mrs. Potter."
