Beautiful artwork with a timely message

The artwork of Jon McNaughton is not only beautiful, but has a message for all Americans.  Please visit his website here to see his talent up close.  Click on either his “One Nation Under God” or “The Forgotten Man” and when it opens, hover your cursor over the people or items to see a descriptive balloon pop-up.  You can also read a little about the artist and the reason he painted these controversial paintings.



Norman Rockwell?

I remember perusing many issues of magazines while at a very young age, but what got my attention the most were the covers of a particular few.  Those displaying the beautiful artistry of one of our greatest artists ever, Norman Perceval Rockwell (February 3, 1894 – November 8, 1978). He was without a doubt a national treasure.  Check out some of his art at the Smithsonian American Art Museum site HERE.  You can also find some at the Norman Rockwell Museum site HERE and many more examples are available all over the internet.  Just Google his name for many more such websites. Be sure to check out this man’s “everyday” artwork of and for the layperson.  I’m sure that like this country’s appreciation for him for many years, you too will be fascinated in his artistry!  Enjoy!
