Tom Bostelle - Aeolian Palace

Artist Jay Rolfe attended the exhibit of Tom Bostelle's work at his Aeolian Palace studio in Pocopson PA, just a couple of miles away, on Saturday. Tom died in 2005, but his work lives on. Bostelle's studio was on the Brandywine River, about 2 miles upstream from Andrew Wyeth's home and studio, also on the Brandywine. The painting styles of Bostelle and Wyeth are very, very different. It's interesting how the same environment can produce such different responses. That's what art is all about, isn't it, one's personal interpretation of life.

The photo of the day is of Tom Bostelle's "Pale Riders" which was painted in 1951. The Bostelle Trust was selling a print of this painting on Saturday.

This is 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 signature style, his innovative 3-D Shaped Stretched Canvas paintings, on his website at http://www.3dssc.com/.
