God Bless You, Andrew Wyeth


Andrew Wyeth died today. The hubster and I just went to Brandywine River Museum a few weeks ago and viewed many of his winter paintings. At the time, his grandaughter gave a short tour and told us that she had just been with Andrew that morning and he was still working.

This phrase describes his works so well:

"I do an awful lot of thinking and dreaming about things in the past and the future the timelessness of the rocks and the hills all the people who have existed there," he once said. "I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure in the landscape the loneliness of it the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it; the whole story doesn't show."

I love that he prefers "winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure in the landscape". What a wonderful way to describe the winter scenery. I feel the exact same way. He painted my landscape, the hills and farms and trees of Pennsylvania, images that I have lived with my entire life. I could look at his paintings for hours and recreate them in my mind driving through the Brandywine landscape.

I just love this cold weather. When I left work today, my car thermostat read 12 degrees. Everyone was complaining about the cold and I just kept my mouth shut because this weather makes me feel so alive.

Last night I went to my hair salon for my monthly trim. While there, I told my hairdresser that I wanted to either cut it REALLY short or start to let it grow again.

She reminded me that everyone thought I looked older when it was longer and that I always feel better about my looks when it's short...so she cut it really short and we died it dark brown. I love it. Picture will come tomorrow.
