In Memoriam: Andrew Wyeth 1917-2008

Artist. Christina's World, the Helga paintings

"I think most people get to my work through the back door. They're attracted by the realism and they sense the emotion and the abstraction--and eventually, I hope, they get their own powerful emotion."

(Speaking for myself, whenever I view Christina's World, I feel like driving up to Christina and asking, "Do you want a lift?"--KJ)

In order to keep the hucksters, humbugs, scoundrels, psychos, morons, and last but not least, artificial intelligentsia at bay, I have decided to turn on comment moderation. On the plus side, I've gotten rid of the word verification.
