After Rockwell

Day 23

After Norman Rockwell's "First Trip to the Beauty Shop"

For my 50th birthday (several years ago - HA), my mom and I spent a week or so on the East Coast and one of our stops was a the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts.  He was a prolific artist who told a story with each of his paintings.  I loved that about his artwork.

A little girl looks at her reflection in the beauty shop mirror as her hair is swept on top of her head. I get the feeling that she envisions herself as a young woman.

Here are some of Rockwell's posed characters alongside his paintings.

Only 7 more days to go in this challenge!
