Norman Rockwell Thanksgiving?

This is me in a Thanksgiving photo a number of years ago (not mentioning). Does this look like a Norman Rockwell Thanksgiving to you? Maybe just a "touch" different.

Norman Rockwell was an iconic painter of Americana. This following image many consider to symbolize Thanksgiving in American. (Image: Saturday Evening Post, public domain, Norman Rockwell http://commons.wikimedia.org/)

Norman Rockwell Thanksgiving

Norman Rockwell from his Four Freedoms, here the Freedom from Want

Although most of our family Thanksgivings do not look like this, there is something it in this image that symbolizes our dinners as well. Grandpa, Grandma and the generation that follow. An ideal yes, but Thanksgiving to the Lord God our creator is always the symbolic central message, or should be.

Blessings to you and your families today. 

When you are ready to buy a home of your own to celebrate your OWN Thanksgivings in your own way or in the Norman Rockwell ideal feel free to contact me for a wonderful home in Arizona and/or the Phoenix metro.

Jeff Masich-Scottsdale AZ Associate Broker,MBA,GRI - Although I love Norman Rockwell art, some are hanging on my wall, I can't say that your great younger version of you reminded me of a Norman Rockwell painting or photograph. But what it did look like to me, was a Cool Dude, a Surfer Boy who just got off his surfboard and couldn't wait to get a slice or more of turkey! You look like a Beach Boy to me!

And the same to you Jeff Masich-Scottsdale AZ Associate Broker,MBA,GRI  Norman painted when life was far more simple, values and ethics far more clear.

Hi Endre Barath, Jr. well Norman's rendition was what I was probably trying to emulate. They were BOTH good! Jeff 😀

Hi Leanne Smith and yes I agree with you. I think in spite of all of the electronics and bustle we all long for that simpler time. Although, we would not have  been spending time blogging back then. Jeff 😀

Norman Rockwell lived a few blocks from my current home in Hamilton Heights (named after Alexander Hamilton- where his home still remains) when he was a boy for a few years. He later moved to the Upper West Side on 103rd and Broadway.  Right now Toll Brothers started selling brand new condos on that block and named the building The Rockwell as a result. Nice apartments, but overpriced- and they aren't selling.

A nice entry to the Challenge and even though it may not have that 'tone' as portrayed by Rockwell, it is still Americana.

Oh, I always loved Norman Rockwell and how simply his paintings reflected Americana - a whole lot less complicated than what we live in today, Jeff!

Great post and love the photo emulating Rockwell's work!
