Wyeth Country
Oil on Canvas
15" x 40"

The area around Cushing, Maine is home to several Wyeths, including Andrew and his sons Jamie and Nicholas. It is easy to see where Andrew got much of his artistic inspiration ... around every corner, there are beautiful scenes of fields, picturesque coves, old farmhouses and busy harbors. Jamie, too, has been inspired by local subjects, from ravens and gulls and lighthouses to the legendary island of Monhegan. This scene shows the furrowed fields that lead to Nicholas Wyeth’s farm. The colors are typical of early September, still green and lush, but just beginning to take on the warmer gold and rusty tones of autumn.
