Happy Thanksgiving!
Charles Burchfield, Turkeys: Window Design, 1921

 

 

"During a blizzard the night before Thanksgiving a flash of pink lightning and a clap of thunder—the wonder and mystery of nature were reborn—It is Thanksgiving morning—I am on my morning walk—the storm has cleared for us—the middle of the sky is a vast cavern of blue—to the south east the brilliant sun rides along the subtly shaped tops of a great bank of cold blue gray clouds, almost black—somewhere a snow storm is raging – to the north a low bank of pinkish clouds—but here it is clear and cold and bright—"
Charles E. Burchfield, November 29, 1930

 

HAPPY THANKSGIVING FROM ALL OF US AT THE BURCHFIELD PENNEY ART CENTER!
