A Good Morning Christmas Picture

Norman Rockwell was an artist who met our expectations, especially when it came to Christmas and the other special occasions we celebrate throughout the year. He painted an ideal America that reflected our own best opinions of ourselves. I love his work.


  1. I love Norman Rockwell! There was an interesting article in Vanity Fair this last year (if I remember correctly) about how the art world turned up their noses at Rockwell for so long, and just now he's getting new-found respect from them.

    I love it! I used to sit down with his Christmas book for hours, reading the stories (like Gift of the Magi) and looking at the pictures. :-)

  2. Hi Cathy: I'll have to see if I can find that article - sounds interesting. I'd like someday to visit his museum, I'll bet it's a wonderful experience. Thanks for stopping by - Merry Christmas!

  3. Here it is!
    Merry Christmas!

  4. Oh, thanks so much, Cathy! I'm looking forward to reading it once the holiday dust settles. Ha!
