The Cathedral Group--Grand Teton National Park
Your artwork or photograph will only be similar to what you saw/felt. See my previous post of Christina’s World. My photo of her house was literal. Christina Olsen suffered from a condition that left her lower body paralyzed. She moved about her world by the use of her arms. You can see how Wyeth used artistic license to separate the barn from the house and set Christina in a position that doesn't correspond to the actual lay of the land. Using this information, you bring your own experience and ideas to interpret what you see.
Jamie Wyeth's "The Red House"
I wandered around the island (no cars allowed there) and came upon “The Red House” looking very much as it did in my Wyeth art book at home.
I couldn’t help myself. I had to paint my own version of the place. I am thinking now that I should not put my stuff next to Jamie Wyeth's. Please be kind.
