Jackson’s description of his experience of nature while painting this canvas shares the enthusiasm Cullen had for painting out of doors: "“…It had rained in the night, the temperature fell rapidly, and when we awoke, the trees were covered with ice. The sun came up and transformed the scene into a fairyland. We grabbed our canvases and, hurrying into the birch woods, we started to paint. As the sun rose higher and higher the ice kept falling from the trees and soon I was looking at a lot of little birch trees denuded of their jewelry.”" A.Y. Jackson, "A Painter’s Country" (1958)
