THE PAYCHECK by Norman Rockwell
"The Paycheck," by Norman Rockwell, 1950s.
Our Berkshire neighbor Norman Rockwell gave Goodwill International this painting in celebration of their fiftieth anniversary.
The wheelchair-bound worker, wearing work overalls and cap and carrying his metal lunchbox, smiles with delight at the paycheck in his hand. The other hand turns the chair's wheel, with such power that he kicks up dust as he speeds along.
