The Olson House, Cushing, Maine.
The Olson House was the subject of many of Andrew Wyeth’s paintings and drawings and made famous from his painting, Christina’s World, now owned by the Museum of Modern Art in New York. I love this area of Maine and one can easily see how Wyeth was inspired by the surroundings. Every summer when in Maine, we visit the Olson House and I never tire finding new ways to capture its essence. On this particular day, it was not open and I had to be satisfied photographing through the windows. I particularly liked this image. If you look closely under the window, you can see my husband’s reflection patiently waiting on the bench in the yard.
Very nice. The reflection of the trees gives this image an ethereal feeling. I’ve photographed the Wyeth locations in Chadds Ford, PA and for some reason they acquire the same look. P.S. I wish my husband were so patient.;-)
Thanks Karen. I too enjoyed the Chadds Ford location!
Andrew Wyeth is one of my favorites. I’d love to tour the Olsen House. Beautiful.
Susan thanks for your comment and visiting any Wyeth sight is well worth it! (sorry for the delay, just catching up!)
