On one day, Cathie [Burchfield's daughter Catherine] 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.
