Charles Burchfield, Journals, January 7, 1918

     A cold cloudy day; snow flurries at times

     The light is shifting – the sky is generally warm (yellow grey) and the difference of light and shadow on houses is more one of value than color –

     At noon south side of house warm + light, west side colder + darker;

     Again – west side warm + light, south side warm but darker –

              _____

     No atmospherical cold – houses are saturated with black –

              Winter Weather -
