i grew up just down the road from parrish's house and studio and supposedly we visited w/ them at their home a few times [but i don't remember that]. i lived very close to where the third picture was done - near the blow-me-down mill. i found this article to be very interesting about how he used optics to get the effects he is so well-known for. when i was in my teens, i spent a lot of time in a home which had a number of enormous paintings by him in it. i've loved his work for as long as i can remember.
