In a journal entry dated April 3, 1910, Dawson wrote: –This spring has been a prolific one. Paintings mainly on wood. Canvas from last year almost run out. The basswood sheets from the crate factory and a little of the Meteer chicken sheathing is still on hand. Some of the paintings are far out and viewers laugh at them, but I am dead serious about every picture…” Reprinted in Abraham Davidson, Manierre Dawson: American Pioneer of Abstract Art, New York 1999, p. 162.
