The very famous " Thanksgiving Day Dinner" by Norman Rockwell always brings a smile to my face...and a chuckle. Mother looks so proud, as does Papa. However if you look closely, you will see a bunch of smiling kids up to who knows what. It is my envision that they are whispering and waiting for the feast to begin. The giggles, the laughter, the man in the right forefront, who is turned around to see the Artist painting. Maybe it is Norman himself? ; )
I do not know for sure, however, what I do know is that the paintings by Norman Rockwell are Americana stories that he told through his artwork. And for that he is known. And I love them all.
So kick off your shoes, eyeball those sweet potatoes with butter and snippets of dill, and know that when the turkey comes out to the table,everyone should applaud the chef.
Happy Thanksgiving to one and all.
