..are what make you smile.
Norman Rockwell is one of my favorite artists of all time--because besides the superb talent and detail in each of his paintings, the subjects he chooses are deliciously small, simple, and real.
He captures a thought in every portrayal--a perfect atmosphere of everything going exactly as it should.
I love the priceless, true expressions he captures--the intense moment of a vital shot in a marbles game, the longing look of a younger sister as her older sister gets ready for a dance, a family gathered around a meal table.
It's the simple things, friends. The simple things are what make life beautiful.
