"Then it came time to lay in Christina's figure against that planet I'd created for her all those weeks. I put this pink on her shoulder--and it almost blew me across the room."--Andrew Wyeth (38)

"And when I walk through the rows of blowing corn, I'm reminded always of the way a king must have felt walking down the long line of knights on horseback with banners blowing." --Andrew Wyeth (78)

The Commedia dell’Arte of Andrew Wyeth—August 9, 2013--original blog post

Bibliolage is a performance—impromptu, self-interested, of rags and patches.

Arlecchino would know the score, and give a kick.

American art reclines on a field of sepia tone. How many tubes of burnt umber did Andrew milk forth?.

Along comes scissors and glue—right now I'm loving a pair of Allex slims and always Elmer's.

It's worth the gambol.
