Obama asks to borrow Rockwell painting

The Problem We All Live With
Norman Rockwell

The Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge has just announced that President Obama has asked it if the White House can borrow one of its most treasured paintings, Rockwell's "The Problem We All Live With," to mark the 50th Anniversary of Ruby Bridges's momentous walk to school, which marked the beginning of the racial integration of the William Frantz Public School in New Orleans on November 14, 1960. Rockwell's painting was made for the cover of the January 14, 1964, issue of "Look" magazine. It's one of his most powerful, courageous, and ardent pictures. The museum has agreed to the request. The painting will be on display at the White House until October 31.

New Print

At a client's request I have printed one of the coloring book pages 'Chocolate Americans'. The single artist proof has been sold but the remaining 5 are available at my print store. I will be adding more limited edition prints in the near future. As for the prints - I highly recommend that any buyer allow a child to color them in with crayons before framing! Consider it 'activating' the art.

Art Storefront finally open

I finally reworked and revamped my website storefront. I still have more things to add but this is a decent start. I get a lot of questions about prints and posters of my art. I'm in the process of making prints of a few works, but less expensive posters of some of my more asked about images are now available. If anyone wants an image that is not currently stocked on the shelf - let me know and I'll put it in the inventory.

You can access the storefront by clicking here.

Each month I will be slashing prices on a poster. In honor of Independence Day, 'American History X' will be on sale for $25 until the end of the month.
