“I became intrigued by a straw hat, complete with purple ribbon, that I’d seen hanging on a post. The tree in this view is close up, confined–dark and foreboding. It’s as if the Sunday hat were left by an older woman. This is in direct contrast to the airiness and freedom of study for SUNDAY HAT, II.”- Bradley Hendershot
