Andrew Wyeth And Me!

Artist Andrew Wyeth and artist Jay Rolfe live 5 miles apart. Yet their painting styles are 5 thousand miles apart. We've lived in the Brandywine Valley most of our lives, yet we see our surroundings very differently. Andrew Wyeth paints this landscape as lonely, cold, and stark (in a technically masterful way). Jay Rolfe sees this landscape as beautiful, green, full of life, and uplifting. The difference just illustrates the principle that it's not the facts that count, but one's response to them that counts.

That's the latest step of artist Jay Rolfe on his Journey From Starving Artist To 21st Century Picasso. You may view some of Jay Rolfe's unique artistic idea, his 3-D Shaped Stretched Canvas paintings, on his website at
