Critically acclaimed painter and professor Margaret Morrison must have had an unbelievable childhood. Her oil painting representations of of favorite childhood toys and candies include PEZ, marbles, the Trojan Horse, Ring Pops, Fisher Price dolls, Hershey Kisses and many others. You'll have to look twice to realize that these photo-realistic paintings are not in fact photographs, because the detail with which she captures the toys is truly awe-inspiring.

According to If Its Hip Its Here, Morrison teaches her art form to many lucky students at the University of Georgia's Lamar Dodd School of Art. She also paints many other subjects, including figurative work, flowers and foods. For the past 17 years, her brilliant work has been represented by New York's Woodward Gallery.
