Oliver's World

Oliver's World

Our friends recently relocated from NYC to Maine and emailed us this photo of their son, right in the middle of the scene from the famous painting, "Christina's World." Later, Oliver's dad photoshopped Christina in to join Oliver on the grass. Here's what our friend had to say about the photo...

"We took a day trip to the Olson House, where Andrew Wyeth painted the famous Christina's World painting. I, like countless other tourists, was trying to take a photo of the same perspective as the painting of the farm with the house in the distance. I soon found out that there are lots of trees and bushes which now block the view, unlike the stark grassy field in the painting. But I took the picture anyway, with Oliver sitting there in the grass. "

We love the idea of integrating your child into a piece of art. Has anyone else had the opportunity to do something similar?
