    Winters Afternoon

    This started off in the WIP section as a tribute to Andrew Wyeth but insisted on becoming its own thing.

    Aaaawwwww hell yeeeaaaahhhh! <ahem> Still have Baby's Got Back going through my head from another thread. Looks like she could fit that back that she's got into that really super Maine stream Wyeth style of the richly painted textured leather chair. Pardon my bling, but if she's wearing corduroy shorts with leather patches on her sweatery elbows, hip hoppin' in that leathery chair it might could sound like a DJ playin' on the turntable. . . but I digress. . .

    Meanwhile back at this great painting (the other back as in to hearken back). . .

    This is masterful. It really gets that plain, uncluttered lifestyle. It's filled with voice. And the parallel between the dog and the chair is brilliant. They seem as if bred from the same lifestyle. Old, worn, craggy and comfortable. The only thing I see as a deviance is that sort of modern illustrative fast strokes on the window. He might have done that kind of thing, but I don't recall it.

    It's like you snapped out of the consciousness of "it's a long winter, so what's the hurry" to there's a deadline, and it gets conscious of it being a painting. Psychologically or subliminally, it says I'm looking at the studs in that wall, implying a lack of old school time and care in favor of a quicker turn around to sell it. Clearly that's nothing more than a perception that's not real because you could have finished it just as quickly with a Wyeth look. But maybe you weren't after that close a style homage. As if in answer to the political sounding question: Who put the Sketch in the Wyeth house?

    Anyway, brilliant!!!!! Really great.

    The chair looks very soft and the dog looks very happy! Surprise me that the dog is not in the chair

    Sketch - Paintings are sometimes like children - You point them in the direction you want them to go, and then they head off by themselves, with you catching up.
    This is so awesome. I really like it!
