I am in Maine this week for a workshop with John Paul Caponigro. On Sunday I took a few minutes on my drive around the area and visit the Olson house that was made famous by Andrew Wyeth. The house is in pretty amazing shape given how old the house is and the amount of foot traffic it sustains year over year. As I spent some time touring the house, I was really attracted to the chairs in each of the bedrooms as well as some of the original items that were left in the pantry, kitchen and storage areas. While I did take several images of the outside of the house, they all seemed a little cliche and simple after looking at Wyeth’s work.
