RSW's Diary Comments

"Painted prior to 1930. An upright painting of an open woodland slope, painted in the Hog Hollow pasture of the place above Johnson's where Luther Purinton once lived. A winter sled track into the snow, blue shadows of a big maple slanting down to the right. At the background (upper 2/3 of the canvas) snow laden woodland of deciduous and evergreen trees, into which the road track disappears. I made a chalk drawing (of which there is a photograph) of the same subject, really making the painting from the chalk. Bought by Miss Ann Morgan and Miss Elizabeth Adams, teachers of chemistry and biology at Mt. Holyoke College, and hung in their very beautiful home in South Hadley. They also own two of my finest chalks."

Comments in a notebook by RSW:

"Purinton's pasture..." "Sold Jan. 14, 1933 to Miss A. Morgan and Miss Elizabeth Adams at Mount Holyoke College, South Hadley, Mass."

General Dynamics is the world's foremost designer and builder of nuclear submarines, the most complex machines made by man. The company's industry leadership extends back over a century to 1899 when it produced the U.S. Navy's first commissioned undersea warship. Today, Electric Boat prides itself on being the premier shipbuilding company in the industry. We develop and apply state of the art technology to the design and construction of nuclear powered submarines. With a team of highly skilled and dedicated employees, we have successfully taken submarine technology to a new level.

"....a lovely canvas. It is just a a bit of winter woods with a blue in the pines and shadows that is all but magic."

Springfield Daily Republican, Springfield, MA: Sat. April 28, 1928

"...Winter Slope, showing a group of pine trees on a hillside covered deep with drifting snow."
