「遠雷(Distant Thunder)」(1961年)

「The picture evolved in a strange way. I had wanted to paint my wife, Betsy, picking blueberries. I completed a number of drawings, but nothing worked. It was just someone picking - sort of trite. I really struggled but got nowhere. Until I decided to hide. I sneaked along the edge of the woods and found her sleeping. I made a quick drawing. As I finished it, I could hear thunder way off in the direction of East Waldoboro. Suddenly, out of the grass, popped our dog Rattler's head, his ears up, cupped, hearing those distant sounds. The sky had that yellowish cast it gets before big storms. All of a sudden I realized that there was too much face. I painted in the hat. That made the picture.」

(この絵にはちょっとかわったいきさつがある。私は妻のベッツィーがブルーベリーを摘んでいるところを描きたいと思った。いくつかデッサンを仕上げたが、まったくうまくいかなかった。よくある「○○を摘む人」の焼き直しにしかならなかった。どんなに悪戦苦闘しても無駄だったので、私は隠れることにした。森にそって忍び足で近寄ると、妻は眠っていた。わたしは即座にデッサンした。描き終えたとたんに東ウォルドボロの方角から遠雷がきこえてきた。いきなり草の中から愛犬ラットラーの頭が飛び出して、耳をそばだてて遠くの音をきいていた。空の色は嵐のまえによくある黄色だった。画面に顔が多すぎる、とひらめいたので、帽子を描いて隠した。それでようやく絵になった。)
