To a fishing village comes Duke Mason, a young artist, to paint his prize picture. He meets Nell Jason, who falls in love with him, as he does with her.

He leaves Nell and tells her that he will return soon. In the city, the picture is a great success, bringing Mason money and friends. He forgets his little fisher-maiden and she waits in vain for his return. He left his paint, etc., with Nell when he went away, and to amuse herself, she paints. Her father is old, and she feels that she must do something to help along. She reads in a paper of an offer of $1,000 as first prize; $500, as second, etc., for a picture to be exhibited in an art gallery several months later. She decides to try for one of the prizes.

Ormi Hawley makes a pretty figure
8 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

A simple story of sentiment, with some lovely views of Florida in its backgrounds. Ormi Hawley makes a pretty figure as a country girl with a native talent for art. When an artist makes love to her, and then forgets her, she paints a picture and wins the Art Club's first prize. The man (Edwin Carewe) sees it and comes back. We can't say that its author, Mildred Goodall, has done anything very strong or original. Producer George Nicholls has made a pretty picture, graceful and pleasing rather than strong. - The Moving Picture World, March 15, 1913
