"Painted 1945. A flat long horizontal canvas, largely composed in the studio where it was painted. I took my painting (24 x 36) of Heath Village (made the same year, together with a chalk drawing of the same subject) as a basis but added to the left a mass of yellow foliaged maples running along a stone wall (made from the photograph of an earlier painting Falling Gold), the tree part taking up about 1/3 of the canvas."
Not mentioned in the artist's notes but known to this writer is the fact that this painting was commissioned to be painted in this manner (with added trees and stone wall) and then subsequently that person did not like it and would not purchase it.........much to RSW's consternation.
