Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Thursday, February 18, 1875, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Still cold. Took a walk and then began my Academy picture an Autumn composition based on my Vermont studies. The size is 24x42 and I painted the sky with the palette knife. I am going to try for more solidity of painting. Thompson called and while he was here Bellows came in. They both seemed quite struck with my last landscape. Bellows said it was the finest sky of mine he had ever seen. Joe Tompkins dined with me. We went over to Vauxs and I invited Sara to go up home with me on Saturday. Wrote to Gertrude.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
