one of my favorites, "Trodden Weed." from the book, Andrew Wyeth Autobiography. he describes it as a highly emotional self-portrait.

the book my folks purchased for me, after we viewed the Wyeth exhibition together. back in 1995. at the Nelson-Atkins.

I remember wanting to have a piece of everything he saw. After viewing his paintings. Since though it seems to some bleak & lonely, I thought instead, it seemed calm, peaceful and passionate.

  1. i took my parents to that exhibit also. and then bought them a print. and then they gave me every wyeth book they had. which were several.

    i have the same reaction to his stuff. peaceful. not bleak.
