RSW's Diary Comments

"Painted about 1931-2. A canvas of folding interlacing hills above a distant valley, pasture slopes in the foreground all delicate with the flush of spring colors---bands of maples in the foreground (and scattered throughout the hills) in pale yellow bloom. Violets, pinks, grays, delicate blues and yellows with small patches of vivid pasture greens in the foreground. Painted from halfway up the steep Burrington Hill in Heath, looking across the Deerfield valley to the Buckland Hills."

Comments in a notebook by RSW:

"Mountain from South Heath Road."
