Wyeth Walks

Impressions – Wyeth Walk #48

My brain was a blur today, had a hard time concentrating.  So, when I finally made it out for a walk as the sun was setting and I was losing all my light, I thought it fitting to create a texture from motion – a blur to mirror my day.

This blurring of the edges reminded me a little bit of some of Ann Wyeth McCoy’s fog paintings.  I decided to look online to see if there were any images to share here (I’ve seen them in the book of her paintings Anna B McCoy edited).  I didn’t see any images in my quick search, but I did find this article about the passing of the NC Wyeth studio to the Brandywine River Museum of Art.  Ann Wyeth McCoy is interviewed for the article.  I hadn’t remembered or known that she actually got married inside her father’s studio under a mural he was working on for the National Cathedral.  Talk about an inspiring backdrop!  Fun!  http://tinyurl.com/koc8hod

On tonight’s walk I was listening to a Chick Corea podcast, where Chick is interviewing Stanley Clarke.  Fabulous interview… I loved how he said when he heard Love Supreme for the first time his first impression was that he didn’t know if he should like or not like the music- it was the first time he observed the music just for what it was.  I feel like perhaps we could all do a little bit more of that with art and music – just observe it without judgement.
