A stroll through Wyeth's Giverny -

The Farmhouse of Wyeth’s ‘Christina’s World’ - "To Wyeth the Olson farmstead was a little like the garden at Giverny was to Monet several decades earlier: an inexhaustible subject for his paintings."
I, of course, concur.  For a dozen years we have rented the hosue on Stones Point across Maple Juice Cove from the Olson House.  This is a nice piece to encourage visitors to come for the magic of mid-coast Maine, of Wyeth's - and my - garden at Giverny.  We're all channeling Monet. - GWC (all photos are mine)
