And a Happy 4th to you also.
Thanks, Fred. It was kind of quiet around here. We had our fireworks on our town's 150th birthday a few weeks ago. Hope yours was a little livelier. :)
Yvette, I am familiar with this Artist He did a Monkey and organ Grinder painting I love. (Besides Leyden is how I sign my work)That almost looks like a Rockwell.Have a great Fourth, the storm cooled it off .
Thanks, Yvonne, you too. The weather today is marvelous. :)Rockwell and Leyendecker knew each other, in fact, Rockwell was a great admirer. Their styles are sometimes mistaken for each other. Rockwell was greatly influenced.
Oh, for old-fashioned fun! And smaller crowds of people!In addition to the wonderful cover, I see there are stories or articles by Mary Roberts Rinehart, Owen Wister, and P.G. Wodehouse! What a way to while away a sultry July 4th afternoon!Happy 4th to you!
Thanks, Joan. Hope you had a great day. Kind of quiet around here, but nice and restful. :) Can you imagine opening a magazine and getting those wonderful writers? Plus great artwork too.
Yvette,Actually it was fairly quiet this year. Perhaps the drought scared a lot of people off of setting off fireworks.
It was quiet here too, Fred. Kind of eerie, actually. :)
Happy belated Independence Day to you. It was relatively quiet here in our neighborhood in Portland, but not quiet enough for the cats.
Sighing with a heavy dose of nostalgia for the heyday of the Saturday Evening Post. As Joan Kyler mentioned in her comment earlier, imagine finding a magazine with stories by Owen Wister, P. G. Wodehouse, and Mary Roberts Rinehart, all in a package with a Leyendecker or Rockwell cover drawing. Sigh.
Your comment will appear after I take a look.
