A pencil drawing was completed in 2013 entitled “As the Crow Flies”. It was drawn to memorialize the death of Andrew Wyeth, (1917- 2009). This image of Andrew Wyeth’s home in Chads Ford, Pennsylvania. They say he died in his sleep, so i tried to depict the night that he died. I believe it to be one of my best landscape pencil drawings to date. Through the past couple of years, as I have looked at it, the need to take it further and create a watercolor painting of the image slowly erupted inside of me. I started this painting on January 16th, the anniversary of Wyeth’s death and completed it in 6 weeks.
