RSW's Diary Comments

“Painted Jan. 1944. My first canvas of this size, made from The Big Chimney canvas with road, barn, mountains etc. added. Made because Mr. and Mrs. ---------------- liked the big chimney but wanted a long flat panel for their fireplace wall. Was working on 2 of this size, when my February illness collapsed me. Took it to their home to try on April 20th and they bought it.



Additional Notes

An old house owned by Mr. Loomer, was built at 1795 and still exists on Village Hill Road in Williamsburg, Mass. Painting is privately owned.
