“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.”

"....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.”
