Yesterday I was at the Burchfield Penny Gallery in Buffalo. Prior to that I had not been aware of Charles Burchfield, although he is an amazing and celebrated artist – he has an entire gallery dedicated to him, after all. They have an extensive collection, even down to little doodles on scrap paper, because he saved everything for posterity, thinking people would be interested in seeing them later. I guess I write like that. Although, in truth my expectation is that I have a very small audience. For instance, I doubt anything I am posting on 100 words is being read.
