Andrew Wyeth Dies

Andrew Wyeth died today. He was 91. I loved the cool clarity and austerity of his canvases. Though other works of his are far more popular, the one above, "Monday Morning," is my favorite. Go to the library and get a book which will offer a larger, better reproduction. Notice the way he paints the wicker, and the dusting of snow, and the stucco. Inhale the frosty air. Rest in the stillness.

Peace to his memory.
