#HappyThanksgiving from the #Art World

Happy Thanksgiving from Norman Rockwell and the rest of the Art World.


  • Goal: Eat a lot of Turkey… run a few miles… maybe 10… that would be nice… a little nap maybe… not too much dessert, that would be bad… ok… more dessert.
  • Access Prior Knowledge: Based on years past… I need to keep an eye on the stuffing bars and buns… they tend to burn.
  • New Information: This is going to be a WONDERFUL Family Thanksgiving. I’ll miss those not here with us!
  • Activity: EAT!
  • Generalization: I am not sure what happened. I feel SO full and bloated. I am getting sleepy… I think a nap is about ready to happ… Zzzzzzzzzzz… Burp!

There’s no retirement for an artist, it’s your way of living so there’s no end to it. Henry Moore

Can you RESOLVE your work and be grateful for where you’ve taken it?


“No one who achieves success does so without the help of others. The wise and confident acknowledge this help with gratitude.” – Alfred North Whitehead
