I have the print of this painting hanging over my bed. It is one of my favorites. It is so simple and yet it is says so much. As a matter of fact when we re-did our bedroom it was one of the first things I hung back up. Andrew died Friday at his home in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania. He was 91.
Did you know that M. Night Shymalan's film The Village was filmed in Chadds Ford and was based on Wyeth's paintings? Mr. Roger's had a Wyeth hanging in the entry of his studio home and Charles Schulz and Andrew Wyeth were good friends? Just some facts for ya'. Well, he will be missed. I still love this painting.
Have a great day!
