On Being Right Size - A Magpie Tale

James Browning Wyeth (born July 6, 1946) "Jamie" is a contemporary American realist painter. He was raised in Chadds Ford Township, Pennsylvania, son of Andrew Wyeth and grandson of N.C. Wyeth. He is artistic heir to the Brandywine School tradition, painters who worked in the rural Brandywine River area of Delaware and Pennsylvania, portraying its people, animals, and landscape.

Jamie Wyeth - Monhegan's Schoolteacher, 2004 - offered as a prompt by Tess Kincaid for The Mag: Mag165.

Because it's a nude I felt compelled to explain, "This is art, dammit! And it's art produced by a mainstream artistic lineage to boot, so it is of course a righteous vision." LOL!!

On Being Right Size

I'm an idiot!
Of course I am, split away
from the rest, singled
out from the wooly
herd, the sheep that came calling.

When I walked in on
you perched on the sill
I could smell the shower steam
and I thought how I
once was in your class,
how you taught me to think for
myself, so thank you.
I am not ashamed.

  5. Oh this is dreamy perhaps even a bit Summer of 42ish even! I really like how you mentioned Jamie, for some reason he really stands out to me as well, as the artist. They don't always, but he does.


The chicken crossed the road. That's poultry in motion.
