My artist of the day posts have evolved into posting a painting that captures some part of today's emotion. I am trying to chronicle how I feel during this challenge through paintings.
Its a a gray day here and it seems more somber than it has been for the past two weeks, I think people are getting weary of making the best of things. I chose this early Andrew Wyeth watercolor - The Road to Friendship from 1941. The moody grayness and the distance seems evocative of where we are today and the title which references an actual place can also be taken literally.
“I think one's art goes as far and as deep as one's love goes. I see no reason for painting but that. If I have anything to offer, it is my emotional contact with the place where I live and the people I do.” - Andrew Wyeth
