Happy Thanksgiving

It's one of the great illustrator Norman Rockwell's series on Freedoms. I had a chance to see many of Rockwell's works a few years ago. His museum is not far from here in a beautiful region of the state called the Berkshires.

Rockwell painted all four freedoms that were outlined in a Franklin Delano Roosevelt address to Congress in 1941. Those are Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Religion, Freedom from Want, and Freedom from Fear.

This portrait is probably one of the most iconic of Rockwell's work. It is Freedom from Want. I say its the very vision of family, food, and love during the holidays.
