Title

Farm, Mountains, and Landscape: Utah

Description

Train Illustrations - (Illinois to California) - WWII Drawings.
Three pencil drawings of Utah landscapes, drawn on the train ride while traveling to Marysville, California.
(1.) "Farm in Utah. Quite a lonely place. It was miles away from anywhere. The barn is a queer affair with an open front at the top."
(2.) "Mountains - Utah. This is a very beautiful mountain and provided an excellent background for the small farm near the highway. All these farms are fenced in like this and it seems odd when there's so much land all around."
(3.) "Utah Landscape -- I liked the nice soft roundness of the hills and the way the foliage grows on them. It resembles an irregularly cut carpet with thick green nap."
