My final project (I'm hoping) for this month will be a "Norman Rockwell subject meets Maxfield Parrish lighting and color." In light of that, I'll be doing a few copies of Rockwell prints. Above is the start of a copy of a "Summer" print he did in a series on the seasons (they might have been in a calendar).
I was trying to come up with a jazzy title for such a project:
- Norman Parrish - sounds like a horror movie character
- Maxfield Rockwell - sounds like I'm explaining a painting of my dog in the country by a large stone and big hole to someone who doesn't get it.
I was hoping to find a link to the Rockwell version of the above image, but I can't find one this morning. It was part of a set of a boy, his dad, and his dog doing seasonal things. I found the dog in several other prints. The father was also a popular model for Rockwell.
