After visiting the Seattle Art Museum Andrew Wyeth retrospective I’m highly influenced by my most favorite artist.

Andrew Wyeth’s biography is the only artists biography that I’ve ever read, and now that I’m thinking about it I need to reread it. Most of his works really speak to me emotionally and if I could emulate him I would.

His artwork, is the kind of artwork that I want to do. I want to move people with pictures.

“The Intruder” Andrew Wyeth

With tonight’s session I worked even slower. After seeing Andrew Wyeth’s work I’m totally fine with this painting taking months to complete. There was a finish and quality in his work, you could see the huge amount of hours spent on each work.
