The focus of this watercolor is the last days of winter and that the snow is almost gone. The companion watercolor FIRST BLOOM AT CAMP NELSON shows the same scene with the flowering blossom of a beautiful pink tree.
Paul Sawyier left Frankfort in 1908 and spent about five years in the Shakertown-High Bridge-Camp Nelson areas. He created new and different scenes of the beautiful palisades, unique High Bridge, and Camp Nelson double wide bridge. He demonstrated by creating over 500 original paintings during this period that he was a very versatile and productive artist of quality works of art. Sawyier sold most of his originals through Brower & Company.
