Andrew Wyeth (1917 - 2009) is one of the best known visual U.S. artists of the 20th century. His painting style was realism, focusing on the northeastern states of Pennsylvania and Maine. The Gates of Melancholy, a name I find a bit bewildering since this is a particularly delightful destination to visit. is inspired by the artwork of Andrew Wyeth and the landscapes which inspired him. High recommended.
All photography was taken with Windlight Sky Setting Places Paris 2 which is available as an optional environmental setting in Firestorm and other viewers. I like this Windlight setting for its soft luminescent skies which do such a good job of colouring land and seascapes.
