A Norman Rockwell Christmas

A NORMAN ROCKWELL CHRISTMAS
I love the sense of nostalgia, emotion, and reliability that all of Norman Rockwell paintings seem to radiate. My grandmother still has a few issues of The Saturday Evening Post and I used to love to look at the covers when I was younger. Last year The Frist had a Norman Rockwell exhibit and I enjoyed it so much I went to the exhibit twice! Even though I was not a live when Norman Rockwell painted the unforgettable covers for the Saturday Evening Post his paintings still take me back to child. Norman Rockwell painted Santa Clause exactly how I imagined he would look like and he so perfectly captures the emotions that all families feel during the holiday season.
