one of my favorite painters, Andrew Wyeth just passed on.
frank once had a moment of clarity in which he realized that sir Wyeth is my spirit animal.
It's true...growing up, my parents had a print of one of his paintings that I would stare at endlessly and I think it peaked my appreciation of the feeling of "plain." Seeing the way he paints grass gives me the warm shivers and makes me want to draw grass all day long. And that painting of the boy: feel it.
here's some days I spent drawing dune grass.
thanks to max for waking me up with the news. thanks to frank for calling me to share a moment. thanks to gravel and gold for also posting up on the man.
