"When I paint an open field or the inside of a building with lonliness implied, it's not concocted. Perhaps I dream of more lonliness in a thing than is actually there. But I'm not trying to be dramatic; it's natural for me. Have we lost the art of being alone? I think we have."
From Richard Meryman's Andrew Wyeth: A Secret Life, pp. 183-184.
One of the TA's at school posted this compelling blog about Andrew Wyeth.
