    1. Hadn't thought of that connect, but yes, they do like similar to Rockwell. I do like these colours, a softness to them.

  3. I love how he portrays the people with so much dignity, respect, and beauty. It seemed like life was so much more valued then. The way we dress really does say a lot about our culture and beliefs.

  4. These remind me of Norman Rockwell: they tell a story as well as draw a picture.

  5. Oooh! I love these paintings, too! And I like Norman Rockwell, too - he does similar ones although I think his colours tend to be a little more muted. I like the bright colours in these paintings. You're coming up with some really gorgeous artworks lately, Jo!!! :)
