RSW's Diary Comments

 Three Friends Sepia
Three Friends Sepia

"Painted in 1943. A painting of the three gnarled old maple trees along the stone wall of the flat on the Heath Burnt Hill Road, just beyond the cellar hole of my Heath Pasture farm. Grass grown roadway, three dark maple boles against a stone wall. The foreground grassed and the foliage rather pale and blond, as painted in September of a very dry year, when the fall coloring was not intense. Sold Nov. 1952 ."
