  • San Antonio Express, May 27, 1917Of “The Storm” he said this: “One must pay special attention to the crest and trough of the sea. I started this picture with a brush and it was rapidly working itself into a fizzle. Then I began using my fingers and you see the result. Only on the boat which is ploughing through the heavy seas, did I use a brush for its outlines. I believe you will agree with me that the waves are faithfully depicted.”
  • San Antonio Express, May 27, 1917“(illegible)…liners is passing over the famous mackerel fishing grounds near the north and south jetties of Galveston. At the left is shown the new government light house which got a terrific pounding in the 1915 storm, but withstood the anger of the sea. This picture was done on a typical August day, notable for its many delicate tints. The water shown here is a sea green with uniform reflection of clouds.”
  • San Antonio Express, May 27, 1917“Another picture shows the mosquito fleet of Galveston tied up at the wharf near one of the smaller grain elevators. These fishing boats are largely owned by Italians and Greeks and in the background are some of the vegetable boats. Some may believe that putting such a scene on canvas is commercializing art. I do not believe that. There is about these boats much picturesqueness and they frequently afford a fine study.”
  • San Antonio Express, May 27, 1917“The scene near Fredericksburg is a favorite spot of mine. In its back ground is the enchanted rock and the stream is the “Big Sandy”. The color effects at that point are wonderful, and one will find many tints in the granite.”
