I almost didn't make it by Saturday evening. A few will remember the Saturday Evening Post. Many will also remember Norman Rockwell's classic self portrait. My apologies to his fans. Comments welcomed.

I love this photo! Very creative. Norman would be honored.

I'm a little disappointed Clark didn't make a cameo appearance.

Very creative idea. This sure must have taken alot of time to plan, setup and shoot. Very nice. A+ for creativity! It would be an interesting portfolio to take more of Mr. Rockwell's work and recreate and shoot it.

Thanks for the compliment, Jane. Unfortunately, Clark was out handling emergencies.

This did take considerably more time than I thought. The toughest time that I had was in finding an affordable tobacco pipe to use for the prop. When I discovered that Wal-Mart did not carry them, I became a bit concerned. Finally located one at Walgreen's.

You are right, recreating Mr. Rockwell's work in photos would be an interesting project. Perhaps we should consider it for a Weekly Assignment.

Thanks, Tom. I yearned for a little more time and a better studio, but the guest bedroom and a painter's drop cloth were pressed into service in a hastily-arranged recreation of this most famous Rockwell painting.

Robert, this is so good, really excellent, congratulations!
I thought of Norman when I saw the thumbnails, I love all the small details, even the printout of your picture on the wall. Now tell me, did you also made the pencil sketch for this picture?

Wow, the attention to detail with the Norman Rockwell is impressive. The chair, the brogues, the stool... Great image.

John,

Suffice it to say that I "commissioned" the sketch. Thanks for your compliments.

Thanks, Suse. I appreciate the fact that you noticed the details. I tried to duplicate, as much as feasible, the details that Mr. Rockwell depicted in his original painting. I found it a bit odd that he did not include a dog or a cat in this one, as he did in so many other of his paintings. Ironically, my dog, Addie, kept inserting herself into the picture, but it took me so long to get this right that she finally gave up and went to bed.

Thanks for taking the time to comment.

Robert

Thanks, Peter. Jane has a very large coffee table book of Rockwell's artwork, and it is quite interesting to flip through it. His art has that nostalgic, innocent, simpler times look to it. Some would say that it reminds them of the "Good Ole Days", but in the good ole days, we would be stuck with film cameras and flashbulbs. Nope; not for me. These are the good ole days.

Thanks, Julian. Your Emergency Exit photo gave me chills last week. (That means it was good.)
