“While driving an old back road I came along this scene and had to turn around and go back and sketch it. It struck me as the happiest-looking place that I had seen in quite awhile and I thought I should try and capture it. After a long, hard winter, this was one of the very earliest days of spring. The place used to be a store in Rectotown and now makes a very nice house. There's a bust of George Washington (by French artist Jean Houdib) looking out the 2nd story window.”
