RSW's Diary Comments

Excerpt from A Winter Afternoon, Oil, regarding this chalk drawing...

"...At the time I made the new painting I also made a chalk drawing of the same thing which was bought by Carl Nilman of Buckland, whose farm in Hog Hollow is the subject matter..."


Additional Notes

This drawing was made from the oil painting A Winter Afternoon which was made from an earlier (possibly 1919), but technically imperfect, painting Woodward would eventually destroy.


This chalk drawing is owned by the Buckland Historical Society in Buckland, MA. The drawing can be seen, on display, in its Upper Street location.
