almost graphic

OK. You’ve seen the motifs already. One of my ordinary routes. Someone tweeted a quote by the late American painter Andrew Wyeth (1917-2009) which captured my feelings walking through this almost graphic landscape:

“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. I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape – the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn’t show.”

I must confess that I didn’t know of this great, contemporary American painter, but I had to look up this Mr Andrew Wyeth and I am happy that I did because his art seems to be both interesting and personal in a low key way.
