Happy birthday, Norman

Norman Rockwell

Today is Norman Rockwell‘s birthday.

Rockwell was a prolific painter and illustrator who is best know for his work on the Saturday Evening Post.

He was born Feb. 3, 1894 and died Nov. 8, 1978.

Today he was honored as on of Google’s Doodles, which are “the graphical logos that sit above the search box on the otherwise minimalist page,” according to The Telegraph.

Rockwell is my favorite artist, and I collect his work whenever I can, which basically means I buy his stuff whenever I see it at an auction or other inexpensive venue.

In honor of his work, I wanted to share a few of my favorite paintings.

Here they are:

Blank Canvas
Dreams Of Long Ago
Fixing A Flat
Freedom Of Speech
Freedom To Worship
I Paint The Candidates (Norman Having Picture Taken)
Mermaid (A Fair Catch)
The Problem We All Live With
The Three Umpires
Triple Self Portrait
