“I became intrigued by a straw hat, complete with purple ribbon, that I’d seen hanging on a post. The tree appears on the right side of this painting, but seen in the distance is a foggy Maine morning. In contrast to the dark and foreboding nature of study for SUNDAY HAT, I, this painting implies a certain airiness and freedom. It’s as if the Sunday hat were left by an younger woman or girl.”-  Bradley Hendershot
