In honor of International Women's Day, Burchfield's quote is about his daughter, Catherine Burchfield Parker.

 

On one day, Cathie showed us the work she had been doing lately — She has made a big advance over work we had previously seen – Her work has boldness, and she seems to grasp quickly the essentials of a mood, or scene. We liked them all, and one in particular I liked so well – a mountain scene from Aspen, Colorado, that I asked if we might take it home with us, and she readily agreed. I promised to send them a “middle period” picture of mine.

Charles E. Burchfield, May 24-31, 1962
