"Painted in 1938. A painting of wild, dramatic flat mountain tops (hence the name suggested by cousin Flora White) and deep valleys, a small mountain farm house on a foreground slope, an arc of the Deerfield River, down in the deep Hoosac Tunnel valley, gleaming white. A sky of gray interlaced cloud, topping half of the canvas. A very impressive painting of which I am proud, yet in general, not a popular canvas."
"Another hard-to-describe November landscape. Mountains very rich in violets, blues, tawny-rose and dull
yellows. Flash of red in farm house silo, buildings weathered gray. Right foreground corner luminous green
gold. Sky dramatic yet subtle, with white, grays and creams, outbreaks of blue at top. Painted at the top
of Hoosac Mountains. Hills are blue, violet, purple, sky a delicate mackerel sky."
"Painted at the top of the Hoosac mountains. Hills are blue, violet, purple, sky a delicate mackeral sky."
This painting is now in Connecticut.
