The law student Norman Rockwell original

My question is: why is your son wearing an apron while supposedly studying law? (is this addressed somewhere else? If so, apologies!)


If you look at the original the law student has an apron on, judging by the context he could be a chef, but a chef who is so engrossed in his books that he takes time out to study . Thatís my take on it anyway.

Well done Anita! Yea, cloning is an art. No biggie though, it didn't change the story. Congratulations, it truly is a Norman Rockwell piece.

I really like this one, but in looking at it again, something strange is going on with his pants leg. Were you trying to clone something?

Very well done, Anita, is your youngest studying law in Perth or elsewhere? Actually looking at the books he must be in the US.

Wonderful image, very Rockwellian. IMO way too much white at the top, but I suppose you have to leave room for the "Saturday Evening Post" :-)
