A member has asked for Christina Olson: Her World
Beyond the Canvas. The member is physically disabled
and can't scan. As with a couple of others who have
contacted me at my other email address, I've asked if
she'd be interested in validating and told her a
little bit about it. So far, I think both of the
people to whom I mentioned that earlier have signed up
to be volunteers--maybe she will, too.

Wondering what the book was about and who Christina
Olson was, since I'd never heard of her, I looked up
both the book and the person. The book is am 84-page
biography. Those of you who may be more art-aware than
I, and perhaps even older than I, though I doubt there
is anyone in that category, may know of an Andrew
Wyeth painting entitled Christina's World. It was
mentioned, apparently, briefly in David McCullough's
Truman biography. There is an interesting web
site--http://tinyurl.com/cvjrj--that tells about
Christina's life. No one knows exactly what was wrong
with her, but there are some suppositions. The
painting, of which there is a picture on the website,
is, to me, haunting--heartbreaking-- and I don't think
I'll forget it, though when you read about Christina
it's a not that at all.
