Jervis McEntee Diaries
Sunday January 1, 1882
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, January 1, 1882, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Sunday, Jan 1, 1882 A splendid winter day, cold and grey. Bowyer, Jamie Andrews and I went out towards the "Roatina" where they had a skate on the upper end of the pond. I made a little pencil sketch. The ice was very pretty with the two dark figures. The figures always seem so much darker than any other object in a winter landscape. It was pleasant to be at home where I always enjoy the winter so much and with so many of our family about us. Sara having a bad time with a swollen face.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
