"Your Move Grandpa & Stumped by Gum"--answer

Postby Mr. Checkers on Sun Jan 08, 2006 2:00 pm

If you love checker art (such as the Rockwell checker prints) you will adore this artists checker scenes--one of which is "Your Move Grandpa" that shows a little girl in a nice pink dress with a pretty ribbon in her hair. She is powdering her nose in front of the checkerboard as she awaits her grandpa to make his next move, but from her expression you can tell that she has got him cornered. "Checker Trivia question of the Day". Who is this famous artist? (Cont.)

Here's the second picture (not that good but best I could find) "stumped By Gum" in the form of a picture puzzle. I'll keep looking for the other picture. http://puzzlehistory.com/stumgum.jpg
