Watercolor on paper
14 1/2 x 6 3/4 inches (sight)
Signature Details: Alice R.H. Smith
Status: Available

This watercolor appears to be an early work due to its smaller size.  And it nearly has the feeling of a sketch.

According to the 1956 book prepared by friends in honor of her 80th birthday, Alice did sell a number of sketches especially during 1924 and 1925. 

Of course, those could have been produced earlier.  In fact, in 1917, she sold a sketch to Admiral and Mrs. W. S. Popham of Charleston called "Pine Tree and New Moon."  This one has been rendered along the same lines, and it has a lovely mood.
