Today is Norman Rockwell's birthday. Rockwell was born on February 3, 1894. A few years ago, on a road trip through Vermont, my wife and I stopped at his studio - now an inn - in Arlington. There was nothing much there to see, but I did enjoy being there - where this wonderful painter did much of his work. I read that Rockwell was raised Episcopal, but after his teen years, he was not much of a churchgoer. His faith must have had some importance in his life - how else could he have created such a beautiful painting.
