Having too much fun with juxtapositions.

Am working on a wearable folk art unit with my fourth graders, and in an attempt to define folk art, here's two samples of juxtapositions that I'm going to share with students:

Kehinde Wiley - After Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres' The Virgin with the Host, 2009

Mary Proctor - Mercy Mercy

Andrew Wyeth - Winter, 1946, 1946

Esther Pearl Watson - Superman, 1957, 2008

I have the best job in the whole wide world.
Now if only I could spend all night looking for more interesting comparisons... instead of doing what I have to do. Sleep, for example.
