For the presidents...

from one of my favorite artists. Yes, I know it's quite normal American, but I just love Norman Rockwell. I love how his painting tell stories.

Yesterday, I spent a little while in The Black Hole (Barnes and Noble) and I came across this book.

So fascinating to see how he posed his subjects exactly how he wanted to tell the story. Imagine being one the of the people he chose to forever immortalize in one of his paintings.....

****confessional side note: I've teared up more than a few times watching the Olympics. Anyone else?
