Day 17: An art piece

Confession:  I'm really not an artsy person.  I mean, I can appreciate some of it, and of course I'd love to go to the Louvre and see the Mona Lisa or to the Sistine Chapel to look at that crazy ceiling, but I've never really had a favorite artist or painting or drawing or sculpture.  And honestly, I see some stuff and I think to myself, "Seriously? That's worth millions of dollars?  My two year old niece could have done that!"  Obviously I'd make a horrible art critic.  And another thing... What's with all the naked ladies?  Why is there so much of that?  I just don't get it.
Now that I've got that off my chest, I have to admit that I have always really liked Norman Rockwell's paintings. There's just something so charming and American about them.  I found this one and I decided it's my favorite.
See? Charming.

Im a sucker for beagles... so of course I love it! Im with you on the naked ladies thing. I think the body must have been better looking back then, no cellulite, piercings, and ugly tattoos!
