    In The Society of Six: California Colorists, Nancy Boas writes: "Siegriest participated in the first Oakland Art Gallery annual exhibition in 1922 and continued to show in it for fifty years. . . . Small houses were among Siegriest's favorite subjects during the twenties. No matter where he was—in Oakland, Seattle, Dallas, or Milwaukee—he gravitated toward the same cottages, farmyards, and lollipop trees, playing with lines of force disguised as architecture and enlivening surfaces with scribbles and dots of color. His handling was sprightly, almost naive, and schematic. Siegriest remembers that in the early 1920s his inspiration, other than that from Gile, came from the Fauves."
