Norman Rockwell | The shiner


      Growing up, my pops got me into Norman Rockwell's artwork. Growing up I was also a fearless little girl. Quite the handful. Weeks after becoming Student of the Month in 4th grade, I got my first detention. The office staff knew me well since. Hehehe...
      This little ginger in the painting shows pride in her fearless smile. She may have a black eye and a few bruises, but she's happy about something in particular...

      At first look you'd think she got her ass kicked. 
Why would she be so giddy though? 
      After all she's at the principal's office. Where she'd probably just lost a fight, but doesn't care because she did it out of principle

      Officially my favorite Rockwell painting.
