"Painted 1941. From the Heath Pasture House in full winter of the snowy foreground, ledges breaking through the snow, the winter Beech against the flat band of tense, deep blue hills and overhead a remarkable gray winter sky, a heavy 'mackerel' sky with a tight braided effect. At the lower right, through pale yellow sun, bands break through the gray for a short space, just above the hills."
"Band of hills of very intense blues, dramatic "mackerel" sky, grays with pale rose and yellow bands at horizon, pale yellow grasses. Wind-blown beech tree dull plum color. Icy grey-green ledges."
