Special day today, the birth day of one of America's favorite artists, Norman Rockwell. I love his paintings, always have. For me, he's never gone in or out of fashion, he's just always existed in his own unique niche. A great craftsman, technician, painter of the American Dream, he was also, first and foremost, a born artist and interpreter. He mirrored (and often idealized) our own ideas of ourselves. But no matter what he did, he added a calming sense of quiet elegance to the mix - he could not help it. I hope you enjoyed looking at some of my favorite Rockwell paintings on this special day.
