And to make a long story short. Betsy owns two islands in Maine, Benner Island and Allen Island, where she has been living with her famous artist husband Andrew Wyeth who passed on in his sleep earlier this year at the age of 91.
You can read her story here: Betsy Wyeth’s Magical Benner Island, off the Coast of Maine.
And Betsy surely wasn't alone with her attraction to solitude. This is what Andrew Wyeth said about his painting style: "I think anything like that -which is contemplative, silent, shows a person alone -people always feel is sad. Is it because we've lost the art of being alone?" From The Washington Times. Read his story here: He paints no more.
I could definitely live on a secluded island, at least for a while.
What about you?
