on top of the world



oh I love this picture. I love this picture. That boy seriously likes that girl.

And the hand holding...it looks like a first "holding hands" to me...which is always a big deal. HUGE deal. The butterflies go crazy inside.

I remember the first time I held hands with Chay.

This painting is called "On Top of the World" painted in 1933 by Norman Rockwell of course. I found a big book of all his prints at a thrift store for $4.00!!! for reals.

It feels like Christmas...like I'm on top of the world! Time to get some frames I'd say. Does that mean I have to go to Ikea again?

how about this one? "Fortune Teller"



and this one? "After the Prom"



Norman I love you.

I like the Fortune Teller. The silky socks on that guy and the look on his face. Amazing painter. Thanks for posting them.

Can you share the title of the book you found "On Top of the World" in? I bought 4 books of his prints from Amazon.com and still haven't been able to snag this photo! I have wanted to frame it for years but the only one I can find to buy is the original, or a postcard. Thank you!
