July 31 – Sat –

Got out the “Bearded Hills” (1931) – and studied it –

Decided to cut three inches off the bottom, and add five inches above – so as to put some tall thunderheads brooding over the hills – which I proceeded at once to do.

Picnic in the park with a loud-speaker, reaching a new low in vulgarity –

Evening B & I food-shopping –

Charles E. Burchfield, July 31, 1954
