A Portrait of America

Norman Rockwell (February 3, 1894 to November 8, 1978)

I love to draw as I posted earlier on my blog. I have a great appreciation for artists. I have long enjoyed the art of Norman Rockwell. He captures emotion and feelings so well with his brush. What he depicts in his art is pure Americana. He always did an excellent job at capturing the golden age of America. If you study his artwork a lot of the time you will see that he is telling a story through his art. If you are a big fan of Mr.Rockwell also then you should consider picking up his book. Here is a couple of videos detailing Norman Rockwell.

      Yeah that’s cool. In the very near future I am going to do a post on the vintage travel posters that were used to promote travel. I love the imagery and the feelings they create that make you want to pick up and go. Norman Rockwell had the knack of capturing such great snapshots of life, I love his work.

  2. The greatest American artist that ever lived. He epitomized the phrase, “A picture is worth a thousand words”. No words were necessary to envolk the feelings he put on canvas. And through so many eras. You never cease to amaze me my friend.
