Favorite Drawing

"Rosie the Riveter" by Norman Rockwell that was painted during World War II to bring women into the work force while the men were away. It was painted for the May 29, 1943 Saturday Evening Post cover using oil on canvas. This painting is an American icon that gave women a "we can do it" attitude during a crisis that lives to this day. "Rosie the Riveter" is one of my favorite works of art because of its historic meaning as well as its message of hope and strength. I also chose this painting to honor the model, Mary Doyle Keefe, died at the age of 92 earlier this year in April.
