Andrew Wyeth

“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.”
— Andrew Wyeth

This is the Casgrain Building at John Abbott College where I work. Yesterday I received a gift that I made to myself in the form of a book “Andrew Wyeth: Autobiography”. It is an amazingly well thought out and well worded book as it shows in chronological order this amazing artists’ life work accompanied by his own comments on the painting process for each and every painting. I am definitely inspired!

Le building Casgrain au Cégep John Abbott où je travaille. Hier j’ai reçu un cadeau que je me suis fait à moi-même, sous forme de livre intitulé “Andrew Wyeth: Autobiography”. C’est un livre de très haute qualité imprimée, intelligent et démontre, en ordre chronologique, ses toiles ainsi qu’un commentaire de Wyeth sur le procédé encouru avec chaque toile. Ça vaut vraiment la peine et je suis hyper inspirée!
