Happy Thanksgiving

Many of Ohio’s county courthouses are architectural gems, located in the center of small towns, like the Clinton County Courthouse in Wilmington where legal work took me this morning.  The rural drive and first dusting of snow was a scenic start to the day, with the visual highlight being this beautiful rotunda in the courthouse. Below were lights and greenery for the season.

America’s greatest illustrator, Norman Rockwell, had an eye for small town detail. He modestly considered himself a story teller rather than a fine artist, but he was both and more. Here’s his famous Thanksgiving scene. The facial expressions make you wonder what the table conversation was!

Whether in a small town or a big city, have a Happy Thanksgiving 2013.
