A Contrast In Connections

by susi Lawson

Took this at a basketball game, I love how everyone is isolated with their cell phones and ipods except for this one couple who is making a personal face to face, connection. To me, this is a 'Rockwell Moment' revealing a bit of the American way of life. Painted in Photoshop using smudge , airbrush and a lot of the # 19 brush. Took me a few nights to complete.

    Thank you so very much Mic, that is the ultimate compliment to me for sure! I admired his work in magazines throughout my childhood years and I know he has been an influence in my work, so thanks again!

    Andy Wells

    That's it! That's who your work reminds me of and an artist that I have long since admired...Norman Rockwell. (I just couldn't remember his name)I hope you take this as a compliment Susi, but all your work has a little Rockwell-ian influence t

    Awesome job Susi! They may also be the next generation for hearing aids. Humm, maybe an investment opportunity. Look forward to your next Rockwell masterpiece.
