This drawing was made during 1917, which Burchfield describe as his "golden year," the most prolific period of his entire career.
Burchfield was especially drawn to watercolor and experimented avidly with it throughout his entire career. This portable medium allowed him to explore the landscape and continuously rework his compositions. Here, he used shades of green to depict the countryside near his hometown, Salem, Ohio.
