Picture over the mantel I am doing an archive crawl to brush up on the comic as well as find my place after losing the bookmark for it. When what do I see in the background, but one of my favorite pictures. Christina's World has hung in my room or home for as long as I can remember. Nice to see someone shares my taste in art.

Picture @Christina: Hi Christina, oh cool I'm flattered. I've written so many pages now that I often wonder if perhaps it's just too long! Chapter four is completed and I'm loading all of those 161 pages as fast as I can but it does take time:)
I really love that picture too! I'm drawn to any picture that's painted really well and makes me think about what's going on in the scene and this was one of those pics that grabbed me the minute I saw it. It's rather haunting but also very inspiring. :)

Definately not too long, as I'm happily doing another archive crawl. It gives me something pleasurable to read while waiting for my various webcomics to update enough storyline. It is nice to see ones with lesbian relationships portrayed in a realistic manner. You capture but the beauty and the pain very well. I especially enjoy when things get playful, but the pain and sorrow are a realistic part of all relationships.
As for Christina's World, the story behind the picture is touching. Christina Olsen was the artist's neighbor, she was crippled with both legs withered as well as an arm so she is actually crawling across her property when the artist saw her. His wife posed for the picture, but he first asked Christina's permission to show her withered limbs. Christina Olsen was frequently the subject of his art and posed for him several times over the years.

@Christina: Hi Christina, I only just discovered this comment you left. Yea it is a sad and quite haunting painting really, but at the same time I was fascinated that he wanted to capture this moment on canvas and have to admit that I find it curiously inspiring too. I read the history behind it shortly after first seeing it and felt it was a tribute to human perseverence and determination to succeed.
