This morning, my wife is watching QVC on TV. One of the things they are selling are battery powered candles with Norman Rockwell painting on them. I sure loved the paintings of Norman Perceval Rockwell. Not only was he a very talented artist who could paint such life like paintings, but he was a very prolific painter. I sure remember all his paintings that appeared on the cover of The Saturday Evening Post. This is what he looked like:
And here are some of his paintings. The next on was titled, "the movie star".
It was amazing how he could catch the human spirit along with animal life that made his pictures come alive.
This next one was special, because it show Norman looking at a reflection of his wimpy self, and painting it as Sauvé, handsome, pipe smoking, man of the world.
And again, showing both human and animal emotions:
Here is a painting he made of himself painting a picture.
And the boy about to get a shot in the rear, so he is reading the doc's credentials.
The cop talking the run-a-way boy out of leaving. Enlarge the picture and you can even see reflections of the windows in the chrome bar stools.
He even painted the moon landing:
I just thought you all would enjoy seeing some of his paintings. Now, have a great day, you hear?
