The Logger Well Content
(from the collection of Brian and Gwyneth Booth)

This sharply critical painting depicts, according to a catalog note, the Devastator who, having cleared the landscape of all vegetation, now pauses to contemplate his evil work. A group of lumber men attempted to purchase the picture with a view to destroying it. Mr. Otis refused and chose to place it with a conservationist couple, who had it framed above the painter's famous battle cry, "Keep America Green!"
