About: Wyeth noted that he was trying to capture the filtered light and mysterious feelings present in the house of his friend Christina Olson, in Cushing, Maine. The artist recalled: It was a foggy day and I loved the diffused light hitting all these ragged things and how the peculiar shadows were cast from those strange buckets.
