For two glorious weeks I rented a cottage in Cushing, Maine.
This was my view from the lawn of the cottage
I found it glorious and painted on the property several times.
Floating in the water is Rockweed
at low tide
one can clearly see is attached to the rocks.
Cushing Peninsula is the peninsula on which the Olson House is located
that very site of Andrew Wyeth's most famous painting
Across this cove from my cottage and this painting
is the home of Andrew Wyeth...one of his homes
Andrew died in 2009
and is buried in the Olson family cemetery.
Why did he choose this spot?
No one knows for sure but we can say for sure
he loved and painted the Olson House
and its occupants
for many many summers.
exactly as he years previously had pictured it
as Christina's stone!!!!
|Christina and her brother Alvaro Olson's gravestone.|
The two siblings died within mere weeks of one another
in different years
