While painting along the Nezinscot, Joel recalls, “…our new dog, Breughel, always accompanied me and after a thorough exploration of the area from his doggish point of view would park himself in the shade of the umbrella to survey the scene while I was painting. I often took great pleasure in the thoroughness and happiness with which he explored the same scene I did, growing more familiar with it as I did and possessing it from his own perspective as did I.”
