I like your work, and Rockwellian influence!

Thanks, Scott. Guilty! He is a huge hero of mine. Scott, I'm thinking of "playing around" with color pencils some on my smaller illustrations; usually I use oils. Any suggestions as far as water color base, wax base, oil, pastel? I know that a lot of folks swear by Prisma Color, which I believe has a wax base. What are your thoughts. Clearly, you have mastered the medium.

You know Danner, I dug out my book of Norman Rockwell works of art. Your style used in this picture is very reminiscent http://www.freelanced.com/images/buttons/send.png?v=3of Norman Rockwell, as is the subject matter. Wow!

Hi,
I tried that link, but I was unable to recover the image. I have always been a big fan on his.

The system put the link in, I did not, I think it is to avoid getting threatening letters from Norman Rockwell's estate. I can proudly say that Taylor Swift's people and another celebrity who I can't remember right now threatened to sue me on Etsy for using their names as keywords and had Etsy remove those keywords from our product keywords. I guess I'm just a s**t disturber. But your style really does resemble Norman's. :)
