Early Sunday Morning, 1930
The image contained within the galley
window resembled an Edward Hopper painting—a still-life
sequel, perhaps, to Early Sunday Morning. Green willow branches
framed the sides and top; in the background stretched a grassy
pasture delineated by the posts of an electric fence; and in
the foreground sat a red pickup truck dappled with sunspots.
Two boys opened the passenger door and jumped out, startling
LP, destroying the serenity of the picture.
