Inspiration: this is Christina's World by Andrew Wyeth 1948. Tempera on gessoed panel, 32 1/4 x 47 3/4"

   This is one of my favorite pieces by Wyeth. The one that made him famous. Beautiful narrative, Christina Olson was crippled as many of us now know. But not knowing that there was something romantic about this

   He painted his life. The people, the places and objects that meant something to him in whatever way. When I look at an Andrew Wyeth painting, I feel like I am stepping into his world.
  The Brandywine River Museum in Chadds Ford, PA is a great place to see alot of his work. There are also a couple of tours - one of NC Wyeths house and studio and the other is the Kuerner's farm.
