Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, July 23, 1880, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Friday, July 23, 1880 Painted in my studio. Began a water color picture of Stratford on Avon. My work all seems poor. I need new impulses and will never do any thing I fear until I get into a different state of feeling. Ma is having Saras room papered and painted for her. A note from Downing. He is going to start for Rondout on his bicycle on Saturday morning, Went to the Strand and paid for the new stone today.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
