"I unconsciously decided that, even if it wasn't an ideal world, it should be and so painted only the ideal aspects of it-pictures in which there are no drunken slatterns or self-centered mothers... only foxy grandpas who played baseball with the kids and boys who fished from logs and got up circuses in the backyard." ~ Norman Rockwell
