Winter Field (2008)
6 x 6
Private Collection

Another small piece from the blog archives.

I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape. Something waits beneath it; the whole story doesn't show.

Andrew Wyeth

Like Wyeth, I prefer this season too. But, it seems to me the landscape actually reveals more this time of year. At least that's what I see. The landscape strips itself bare, things feel closer to the surface, raw, achingly beautiful. As artists we can use that.

Just watched a special on Andrew Wyeth on Link.TV and appreciate his work even more after hearing about his life and how his art evolved.
