Wyeth’s “Homer”

Image: JamieWyeth.com

Fred and I were in Maine, we were at a bakery across from the Farnsworth Museum when we spotted this poster in the window entitled “Homer” by artist JAMIE WYETH. It was shortly after our Jack Russell Terrier (JRT), Reginald,  passed away after 14.5 years. We missed him. He was a smooth coat JRT unlike Homer. But this painting was a reminder of his spirit. We don’t usually buy posters, but this one we had to have… the little guy has such spunk. Now we have a rough coat JRT (“Charlie”) who looks amazingly like this painting, except that his face is half light and half dark. He’s a trip! Jamie did such an awesome job of catching every nuance of this breed of dog.

Catch you back here tomorrow, and if you get a chance check out my photo blog at http://almostdailypic.wordpress.com !

    I have this particular poster (or print? I don’t know which) that I bought at a charity art auction for an animal shelter. It is signed by Mr. Wyeth and he also “doodled” a dog (presumably Homer) digging a hole. I love it!

    I have scoured the internet to see if this piece has any additional value because if the doodle and to assess if I should insure it, but have come up dry. Do you have any thoughts on this?

    Thank You,

    If it’s an unnumbered (open edition), signed print, it is worth @250.00-750.00. One thing we have going for us in the value department is that the “Homer” print seems to be sold out.
