  2. Not sure if the link is working. Interesting painting. I have no idea what it may be about, but I wrote my tale, and now I will google The Revenant.

  5. Hi Tess. I'm not sure if I got things well here, I didn't research anything on the painting, I just went on a go.

    Have a great week everyone!

  6. Interesting that the critics often said Wyeth was not that deep. I think making himself a walking ghost is not exactly surface stuff.

  13. As I pondered what to write, I realized a piece I'd written earlier in this week, entitled "Disappearing" was serendipitously appropriate for today's Magpie image...

  18. Tess,

    (The) Wyeth(s) paintings always press pass nostalgia and hit loneliness.

    This one is typical by filling and emptying at the same time

  33. Three generations of Wyeth men, each a great artist in his own right ... I'm glad you chose Andrew. He is my favorite.

  43. The painting gives you the feeling of an unfinished masterpiece, however cliched it sounds..
    And what co-incidence, it goes well with my submission!!

    Happy Blogging!!

  45. Finally. I cannot believe the timing of this prompt! We just visited the Farnsworth Museum, which has loads of Andrew Wyeth's paintings (though not this one), and once again, you tapped into something I had been thinking about. How do you do that, Tess? Thank you.
