A cold windy day, brilliant sunlight – great white sweeps of cloud – Sky at north a brilliant white at bottom rich cerulean + cobalt about – emerald trees up against sky - + YG below

Trees almost out in full – a pattern is formed by the slightly covered branches –

A grey afternoon

queer green of trees –

rainy night –

Charles E. Burchfield, May 12, 1916
