Norman Rockwell on Google

Norman Rockwell Google

I love this commemorative doodle for Norman Rockwell's birthday on Google today.

I loved a Norman Rockwell painting before I knew what it is, this particular one that hung in the dentist's office when I was a kid:

I'd find out later that it's entitled Before the Shot.

When I got older, I found out that Norman Rockwell is my father's favorite painter. He had this as his desktop wallpaper at one point, The Runaway:

I'll have a print of this painting in my house when I grow up.

My dad also introduced me to these two humorous works, the Triple Self-Portrait...

...and The Gossip. Check out the expressions, especially that of the first/last lady:

I'm actually browsing more of Norman Rockwell's works on right now and they're all brilliant. Go check!

Happy birthday, Norman Rockwell!
