If the public dislikes one of my Post covers, I can't help disliking it myself.
Quoted in the NewYorkTimes, 28 Sep1986.
The View of life I communicate in my pictures excludes the sordid and the ugly. I paint life as I would like it to be. (Somebody once said that I paint the kind of girls your mother would want you to marry.)Norman Rockwell
Without thinking too much about it in specific terms, I was showing the America I knew and observed to others who might not have noticed. My fundamental purpose is to interpret the typical American. I am a story teller.Norman Rockwell
I'll never have enough time to paint all the pictures I'd like to.Norman Rockwell
The secret to so many artists living so long is that every painting is a new adventure. So, you see, they're always looking ahead to something new and exciting. The secret is not to look back.Norman Rockwell
