Description Ruminations of . Lzfe and Art OUR SEPARATIONS I was separated from my wife three times during our mar- ried life. The first time was when Willard was about three years old. I drove a team to Yellowstone Park." Her father, mother, and two younger sisters, Jennetta and Rhoda, and Dr. Ralph Richards were of the party. The four former were in the spring wagon and Ralph and I drove the heavy baggage wagon. We were gone two months and what a long trip it was, as I think of it now. It seemed ages. I wrote to my wife almost daily and received letters from her at the same rate. When we had been travelling for two weeks we received mail that had been posted two days before. It seemed as far away as Europe by travel, and just in the next county by mail. She had our route and so knew just where to send the letters. My thoughts were with her and my boy all day and my dreams were of them at night. I declared I would never leave them again, and my boy was grown before I did. In the next trip I was away from them no longer time, but thousands of miles farther. I was in a run down condition so she and our artist friend Mary Teasdel put their heads together about it and sent me off to Paris, with Bert Teasdel, her brother, as my companion.11 And the sweetest joy of the whole trip was the returning to my family. How I loved them all and from the day of leaving looked forward to the return. Yet I did not let that spoil my oil signed and dated by him in that year, titled Deny Cnn?zes, Fence, is in the West High School Collection, Salt Lake City. 10 This was in 1895. On the way to Yellowstone, titled Bear LnRe. Hnrwood Art Exhibition, 8, no. 35. Harwood painted a work 11 That new "inspiration and influence" did reach him seems proven by Throtlgh the Porthole ( 1911) painted on that trip. A new freedom from linearity is evident, and a similarity shows up to some extent in a handsome untitled and undated landscape that is, along with Th~oqh the Porthole, owned by Brigham Young University. In both (a watercolor and an oil) an underlying sense of firm and essential structure is, typically, not sacrificed. Ibid., 6. 137
