A newspaper criticism on the art exhibit, in which I was especially mentioned – my work “Blunden Harbour,” and the little spindly pine tree peeking up into the sky. Art criticism was flowery, from a professor of English at the University. The fact that the canvas was a sky study entirely missed them. Below was a low beaten stretch of earth; they called it “the thicket.” It was only an incidental. The sky was the subject.
