New, and headed to Banks Gallery: “Foreside II” 48 x 48
Having loved the work of Andrew Wyeth as a kid (and still), his 1965 painting, “Weatherside” has fueled inspiration for many pieces, partly due to the Olsen house being very similar to the house I grew up in outside Boston, but also for the simplicity of the composition, dominant presence of the main house, and unmistakeable Wyeth light and shadow.
On a recent drive through a rural Massachusetts town, I came across an old, abandoned house that immediately conjured up “Weatherside.” A quick photo with the iPhone, then a couple charcoal sketches to edit out clutter and define the light, and the resulting “Foreside II” is complete and at Banks Gallery in New London, NH.
