Painted a picture based on the notes I made back in 1941 (Nov.) of the star-risings, from a lonely road northwest of Warsaw. Added were a moon just showing above a distant hill, and frost covered field plants – In the sky on the right were Sirius and (above) Orion – to the left a portion of Gemini.
