Entering the world of paintings

During our stay in New York, Bob and I spent one day across the Hudson in Princeton with friends who have small children.  Because we wanted the children to be entertained, we went to the nearby Grounds for Sculpure .

One of the things they had was a series of Impressionist and other paintings that had been made into sculptures, complete with brushstrokes in the style of the painters.  I found them a bit cheesy, but still, it was hard to resist putting ourselves into the paintings!

Below: The Girl with the Pearl Earring, by Vermeer, and two views of The Boating Party by Renoir.  In the latter photo, the sculptor has added some modern artists to the scene.
