Laura Lorenson - 1958

In this winter scene three of eight panels of the octagonal house can be seen, including the front entry. Shutters have been added to the windows of the original house. The view shows not only the rectangular attachment on the right side, which appears to also have an entry, but also part of an attachment protruding from the back of the house on the left side.
