Eric Hodecker is Stephen Hodecker’s brother. Given that he lives in Meredith, N.H., as does Stephen, I would have to think that I have met him. I do remember a Christmas party, probably 1998, at a Hodecker household, with a Hodecker wearing a very clever ‘Viagra Erectable-on-Demandred christmas hat. Given his humor and talent that very well could have been Eric.

Not sure how or why he was not on my radar given that I have followed Stephen’s work since 1987.

A few days ago Stephen posted Eric’s ‘deer co-worker’ cartoon, middle (yellowed) one on top, on Facebook. I LOVED it. My time of off-beat but incisive humor.

I befriended Eric. Now I can follow his work better. I need to find more of his work. Very clever. What a family. What talent.


My kind of British humor.
I am sure Eric will get a kick and maybe some inspiration
from this video.

Stephen Hodecker, quite justly, is well known as a painter, his nudes, in Meredith, very publicly displayed.

Stephen, however, is also a very accomplished bronze sculptor — and sculpting in bronze is not easy.

Here is very sensuous nude he sculpted c. 1998. Not sure who the model was.

I was lucky enough to get some pictures of it the other day.

As I have mentioned before, and spelled out in some detail here, we have somewhat of a family connection with Andrew Wyeth. Deanna, who grew up in Cushing, Maine, where Wyeth had his Summer Home and did most of his most famous paintings, knew him and her aunt, by marriage, is ‘Siri‘, one of the young ladies, from Maine, painted by Wyeth.

So when Artsy sent me an e-mail about their new Andrew Wyeth page and asked whether I would feature it on this blog I was more than happy to oblige. Check it out. Neat resource. I was impressed and so will YOU. Cheers.

I have known Stephen Hodecker since 1998.
[I also used to know his sister who is also a well-known artist.]

I have a bronze of his that he cast in 1999.
Deanna and Devanee have adopted it.
Deanna, especially, has taken a proprietary interest in it. 

These days I typically only see Stephen if we both happen to be at
Giuseppe’s, Meredith [N.H.] at the same.
And this usually happens when we attend the annual
JTG Music Memorial Extravaganza.

So, we did meet Stephen this year
and I got his latest business card …

I had not noticed before or maybe his style has evolved.
He definitely has some Wyethian touches these days.
Maybe most New England artist end up with some influence.
Next time I see him I will have to tell him that
Deanna actually knew Andrew Wyeth.

Stephen Hodecker

Stephen Hodecker at the 21st JTG Music Memorial Extravaganza at Giuseppe’s (Meredith) on Sunday, March 29, 2015. [[See posts on this blog, March 30, 2015.]]


What I (rightly or wrongly) consider to be the most famous Hodecker nude. The setting appeals to me and I am quite partial to the ‘subject’ matter. And that is all we are going to say.
