Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Friday, October 31, 1873, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Friday, Oct 31, 1873- The country is growing brown and bare, and the cloudy skies and the lights along the horizon predominate. I paint every day and in the afternoon take a walk. Today I went over towards Jacob valley. It has been cloudy but still and not very cold. I painted on my little picture of the Entrance to the Highlands which I improved very much. I have finished the picture of the brook from one of this falls studies, so that I have three completed small pictures about 12x20. I received a letter from Fitch today wanting something for the Century on Saturday. I answered his letter immediately and told him to take anything he pleased from my studio.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
