Grounds for Sculpture

Manet painted The Boating Party. Seward Johnson made it into a life-sized reproduction. And I put myself in the picture, just for fun.

If you haven't visited Grounds for Sculpture, you should. Seward Johnson founded it and many of his works are there. However, many other artists are featured there as well.

We were there last week because Daughter #3 had some of her pastels displayed in a special exhibit.

Grounds for Sculpture is incredible. I would love to go again--soon. I highly recommend it.

So, you're the lady on the left in the top two pictures, and the second picture is the original Manet, right?

Just Kidding!

That art is very cool. The man, dressed as he is in that day and age, must have been a ruffian. And he's chatting up the fine lady in her high class clothes.
I think the painting tells a story.

Seeing the life-sized reproductions is also a good way to review art history. :^)
