January 15th - A sad day for the art world

Artist Andrew Wyeth died January 15th. I was surprised and saddened to read the news online yesterday. His work is an inspiration to me and many others. As a wanna-be artist I owe him a great deal.

One’s art goes as far and as deep as one’s love goes.

  1. I too was saddened to hear about his pasing. I remember going to an art show (all the artists were students from the area high schools) at an art museum when I was 13 and seeing a replica of his self-portrait Trodden Weed where he painted himself from the knees down standing on a weed.

    That's always been one of my favorite paintings. After that art show, I looked up more of his paintings and his family's paintings. I really like his father's work too. I love the way they both injected humor into some of their self-portraits.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment.
