I'll throw in one last Hollingsworth nugget as the frosting on the cake (or the oil on the canvas). Hollingsworth suffered some doubts as to whether he could become a successful artist practicing his vocation in his native state. Karl Wolfe, a good friend who was also a Jackson artist, gave Hollingsworth the following advice: "Why, Hollie, you don't have to go to New York or Chicago. You can paint out the window" (Welty 29). Hollingsworth continued to "paint out the window" by creating local scenes of Mississippi and portraits of Mississippians until his untimely death.
