Andrew Wyeth



Like many artists, and fans around the world, I've been reflecting on how important Andrew Wyeth's paintings have been to me. I discovered his work when I was in my late teens, and it's been a part of my life ever since. In the last two days I've been writing and editing my thoughts, for a post on my blog, but kept coming up short. Nothing I wrote seemed to honestly express my feelings, so I decided to just create a short slide show of some of my favorite paintings, and let it go at that.



And to say thanks.

Thanks for posting the slide shows.
Wyeth had been a favorite of mine for years and it's always amazed me how he could say so much with such spare compositions and restrained color. I don't know if he could have said as much using more.

Thanks for your great work...and what is oil painting? Oil paints on the canvas. It's an indisputable definition. I thought that oil painting is more than that....
