Other Notes: Accompanied by a letter from the artist to the original owner, dated Oct. 24, 1967: Hello Helen, You asked for a green picture with snow capped mountains, well here it is. Now I am wondering if this will suit you, I tried my darndest to create a subject acceptable to your taste, if it does not fit the bill send it back for another try. The flowers are the wild irises that grow around the Bishop area. In fact the subject is an actual shot. Best wishes for good painting, Robert.

  • Condition: Minor spot of paint loss, lower right edge.
