Storyline

A large canvas is painted before the camera, and in seven successive scenes we watch this picture take form and substance, while ever before the eye is the subject of the sketch, the Yosemite in all its grandeur. The story tells of the painter's love for the modest, young schoolmistress, who passes the spot daily where he works, of the coming of a rich, young summer girl, who amuses herself with the artist, the jealousy of the schoolmistress and the final realization to both the artist and the schoolmistress of their great love.
