Two slightly cold days. An easy wind and ceaseless sweep-away of cold blue clouds. The ground does not freeze, except at night a filmy crust. Today at times itsnowed — a peculiar ghostly snow as if we imagined it. Early in the evening a bullet-shower. Show sketch I made Saturday to Keller. He liked it as did Wilcox. He called it post-impressionism. Gave me a criticism. This afternoon the sun came down to earth in shafts." - Charles Burchfield, February 16, 1915
