One of my favorite illustrators is Norman Rockwell. He often illustrated children in their most awkward and vulnerable moments. I believe it’s in those moments that we can find out the most about ourselves. And it is in those findings that we can see truly how we need to relate to one another. For if we see that we are weak, strong, brave, or unsure, then certainly others are as well. To know how we’d like others to respond to our propensities, we can then ascertain how we should respond to others’ needs.
In a post by The Saturday Evening Post it was stated that “…Rockwell’s art captured the simplest of moments, providing profound insight into the interactions of man.”
And in that same article there was a quote from Rockwell’s granddaughter Abigail Rockwell, where she said her Grandfather’s work was, “…about finding that goodness in ourselves and others,”.
Let’s look not only inside, but outside as well, and nurture the serenity in both.
My posted illustration is a marker and ink piece.
