Landscape - A Magpie Tale

Jamie Wyeth, Lighthouse Dandelions, suggested by Tess Kincaid but found *here*

Jamie Wyeth is a third generation member of a family of artists, all in the Contemporary Realism school. His grandfather: N.C. Wyeth. His father: Andrew Wyeth. He was raised to be the artist he is, basically home schooled in all things and especially in his art by his family.


The rolling lemon
hillside of my inner peace
has a high holy
house of light and shade
erected here on the land
of my natural

My ache
over the strange wash of light
I find in this scene
is barely matched by
the palette of squishy stuff
I now have at hand.

Gossamer weeds bend
my heart. I sway in the wind
that comes from the sea.
