Mr. Bohm wrote of this painting ." ... I have found In the elements of this composItion
a mood of nature that has always lmpres~ed me. Early morning light delicate foliage of Spring, silvery gray lights of the morning dew ... wlth such elements
I have tried to create a poem In subtle grays. People of the soil awake
with the coming of light. I have used the figure of the washerwoman only as a
suggestion of life and as a touch of color, the only pure color in the canvas .
