After the death of C.S. Price in May 1950, his brother Maurice gave his easel, painting table, and paint cans to Price's friend Amanda Snyder. She painted at least two works depicting these tools of his creative life. Snyder's painting of Price's easel is in the collection of the Portland Art Museum. She gave her depiction of Price's paint cans to Maurice Price, who bequeathed it to his and C.S. Price's niece, Francis Price Cook. Painting in a manner of Price's style, Snyder renders the cans as sculptural forms, solemnly commemorative of the friend she always referred to as "Mr. Price".
