Charles Burchfield - when I quit my job in 2002 I took a trip down to Austin to see my friend, Tye Harvey. I stopped at as many museums as possible on the way, including Mason City, Cedar Rapids, Kansas City and as least two museums in Fort Worth and one in Austin. Burchfield kept showing up as an artist that I would see from across the room and say, "Who is that?"
