Sick & vomited in the night – today an inactive one – in studio in afternoon – I suddenly realize that I am done with the shed in swamp and hollows pictures and must put them away – which I do with regret, closing a door on an adventure in imagination which was one of the happiest in my career –

3/26/43 Re-opened, and even greater pleasure this “door”

Charles E. Burchfield, May 18, 1934
