I recently had the pleasure of visiting the Norman Rockwell museum in Stockbridge, MA, to see my Rose Red painting on view as part of the ‘Enchanted’ exhibit.

As always, tons of Norman Rockwell originals were on display throughout the museum.

I am always inspired when looking at Rockwell’s paintings. I love inspecting them close up and dissecting how he created such incredible illustrations, usually in a remarkably short amount of time.

To help me remember certain mental notes, usually in regards to where I need to improve, I typically take lots of photos of small details when looking at art. I figured I would share some of those shots, in the hopes you might enjoy some finer aspects of Norman Rockwell’s work that you might not get from a printed page.
