The artist wrote ... "Perhaps it would be of interest to your members to know something of the motive of this picture ... it was painted In the Great Smoky Mountains near Gatlinburg, Tennessee, one of the oldest settlements in the Smokies ... to a mountain woman, her garden is her sanctuary and rarely Is a man ever allowed to enter it; however, the couple in the picture having recently been married, and being of the younger generation, he wishes to help ... for that reason I have used the title 'For Better, For Worse'."
