With trying to get my house ready for Christmas gatherings, decorating and working overtime at my day job, this picture describes exactly how life is right now. Only my hair is more disheveled and I’m wearing a bath towel.
This Norman Rockwell Christmas painting was the 250th overall out of 322 total published Norman Rockwell Saturday Evening Post cover. Rockwell’s career with the Post spanned 47 years, from his first cover illustration, Boy With Baby Carriage in 1916 to his last, Portrait of John F. Kennedy, in 1963.
This was also the seventh of seven Rockwell painted Saturday Evening Post covers in 1947.
This Christmas picture continued The Post’s long tradition of presenting a Norman Rockwell Christmas painting on its cover.
