Jamie Wyeth IV: Halloween Redux
Just when you thought Halloween was over and it was safe, I finally get around to my somewhat spooky Jamie Wyeth paintings. This has been my screen saver for over a month now and is one of my favorites. The Headlands of Monhegan Island, Maine, 2007.
It’s hard to see, but there are people in the upper right hand corner throwing their Halloween pumpkins into the sea, a yearly island tradition.
Then we have Meteor Shower (1993) and Raven (1980).
Here is Pumpkin Shadow (1977), Pumpkinhead: Self-Portrait (1972), my self-portrait and close-up of my pumpkinhead costume. I stuffed the pumpkinhead with blank newsprint and it stands well on its own. Everyone loved my costume but I could not wear it for very long because it was really hot. Next year I think I’ll just sew a mask or use makeup.
and Inferno, 2006, more seagulls, a recurring theme.
Here is my daughter as Persephone and Gene Simmons also dropped by.
Here is Louise Bourgeois’ 30-foot tall sculpture, Maman (1999), a close-up of the egg sack and the window decal, all at Crystal Bridges.
So it’s off to the races for the day, with mundane things on the menu like laundry, paperwork, packing up Halloween till next year, and maybe I’ll finally get my quilt labels printed out and write out step-by-step instructions with photos. Enjoy the fall weather if you have it.
