In tho meadow take their proper places
ill tlie distance.
Hut his house of what constitutes .1
picture Is not profound. Like many
niwither tmpremlonlst hf fulls to see the
difference between the study and the
painting. Painting the picture lace to
taco with nature the artist Is too much
intimidated by the fuels and puts in
some that are irrelevant, to the confu
sion of the composition. Monet and
Culllaumln, working outdoors also, ate
always in comma,iid of their theme.
There Is no doubt ever that the) have
a theme. They don't tako up their
brushes until they feel the motif. The

and "do" It.

though not, of course, with Weir. Ills
"October" Is one of his best, an exceed
