Burchfield Homestead added to Ohio Literary Trail
"Burchfield’s nearly daily journal entries filled 72-bound notebooks that are now in the collection of the Burchfield-Penney Art Center in Buffalo, N.Y. His 10,000 pages of handwritten notes chronicle his daily schedule, important events, thoughts on music and art, and observations of the natural world including the weather, clouds, wildlife, and his walking destinations. Most importantly, Burchfield’s journals provide insights into his creative process. They are the basis of Charles E. Burchfield Journals: The Poetry of Place and Burchfield’s Dreams: Works and Writings by Charles E. Burchfield and other scholarly books published since his death in 1967."
