Figure Eight

It's heart warming to see Grandpa feeling like he's 15 again as his grandson looks on with amazement in this 1948 painting from Rockwell's   "Grandpa and Me" series.
 Norman Rockwell was a 20th-century American painter and illustrator. His works enjoy a broad popular appeal in the United States for their reflection of American culture. Rockwell is most famous for the cover illustrations of everyday life scenarios he created for The Saturday Evening Post magazine for more than four decades
