He completed the painting called “An Opalescent River” and was awarded the Carnegie Prize at the National Academy of Design in 1909. The painting was immediately bought by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, where it remains today. This was the beginning of his love affair with the North and Deerfield River valleys. He painted outdoors in the weather and he was most well known for his ability to paint ice and snow. Many of his paintings are identified as “The Berkshires” but on close inspection it was found that most are actually the Shattuckville portion of Colrain where his home and studio were on the banks of the river.
