|Therefore let us pursue the things which make for peace |
and the things by which one may edify another.
Norman Rockwell (February 3, 1894 – November 8, 1978)
I have always loved the paintings and drawings of Norman Rockwell. His work was and remains wholesome and inspiring to folks. I read that he was married 3 times. His first marriage ended in divorce. His second wife died of a heart attack. He was married to his third wife until he died in 1978. An interesting note: Mr. Rockwell underwent psychiatric treatment to which his analyst Erik Erikson, told the artist that he painted his happiness, but did not live it.
It seems to me that very creative people give so much of themselves through their work, they often suffer from the loss with unhappiness and depression.
I would like to thank Mr. Rockwell for his contribution to the world.
