Because there has been a lot of anticipation for the new documentary, "A
Wyeth Hurd Original: Peter de La Fuente," I want to clear up a little
confusion. It is now available (on video and DVD), but since I can't update
my website until the first week in January, the title and description won't
appear there until that time. For all who need this information now, and for
all others who are interested, here is the program description that will
appear on the website:

A Wyeth Hurd Original: Peter de La Fuente
There is no mistaking the greatness associated with the names of Wyeth and
Hurd in the world of American art. And now a fourth generation of artistic
excellence has emerged from these two loved and admired families, Peter de
la Fuente, the grandson of Henriette Wyeth and Peter Hurd, and great nephew
of Andrew Wyeth. Peter's story is truly unique and one that will be
treasured by all art lovers. From the influences of N.C. Wyeth, the
conversations with his "great uncle Andy," the boyhood memories of growing
up on his grandparent's ranch to the diligent hours upon hours of working to
learn about watercolors and then egg tempera painting, we learn the story of
this totally dedicated, self-taught painter who draws from life's
experiences to paint the world that he sees with the emotions that he feels.
Like his great grandfather, N.C. Weyth, Peter's art now appears on book
covers, explained by the best-selling author, Michael McGarrity; also
Peter's grandfather, Peter Hurd, introduced Egg Tempera painting in the
United States, and Peter carries on this tradition today and presents a
how-to workshop on creating Egg Tempera paintings; lastly, admirers of
Andrew Wyeth will love the Home Video of Peter speaking with his "great
uncle Andy," which was actually filmed by famed model, Helga Testorf. 2
