A Norman Rockwell Thanksgiving   4 comments

In looking back over various Thanksgiving posts through the years, I see that I’ve included everything from a nostalgic family tale to a slideshow of painted turkey feathers. But one thing I haven’t done is feature pictures from my favorite artist, Norman Rockwell. Although he was known for all kinds of heart-warming illustrations, he was especially fond of those depicting Thanksgiving scenes. Many of them featured themes that were relevant during the war years, but most were timeless.

  3. Very nice slideshow. You’re the best!

  4. Glad you liked it. I think it’s a real shame that ‘sophisticated’ art experts always looked down their noses at Norman Rockwell.
