Description: Broadleaf trees and brush line both sides of a still creek or lake inlet at the bottom left. On the right, a canopy of three trees with white lower trunks is silhouetted against the blue sky; at their base two fallen snags lie on the bank. On the left, on the far side of the forest stand two tall, slender snags. In the distance is the hazy outline of a ridge with a bump near the center. (From a color photograph.)
Note: 1. In fall, 1999, an image of this painting was posted on the World-Wide Web site that displays the collection of Edan Milton Hughes (1935–2015). It was simultaneously offered for sale by california-art.com using the Hughes inventory number. 2. Paintings with this title have appeared in at least two 19th century auction catalogs but without enough information to either include or exclude the possibility that one of them is this painting.
