Andrew Would Have Been Proud

An online discussion about the famous painter, Andrew Wyeth, with another blogger reminded me of this photo — which I figured they would appreciate seeing.

For those unfamiliar, Andrew Wyeth is considered a modern master of egg tempera, a form of painting that dates back to the early Egyptian era.  Andrew was known also for his muted color palette, isolated subjects, and rather bleak-looking compositions — all of which I thought of when I saw this image before me in a snow storm.
