This isn't one of his, but I like it a lot..."Timing is Everything" by Dru Blair...note the cub scouts at the lower left:
Do we ever need that! As some who are older seem to have forgotten.
Oh, forgot to mention...met a gent today at the servicewho was one of the chartering scouts when the troop was founded in 1942. Turns out he stayed for 50 years and retired as scoutmaster in 1992!
Joseph Csatari, Norman Rockwell’s Scouting successor, is also an American realist artist and illustrator. Like Rockwell, Csatari illustrated for the Saturday Evening Post, Brown & Bigelow Boy Scout calendars, and Boys’ Life magazine covers. His involvement with the Boy Scouts of America has been one of length and dedication.
Csatari was born in 1929 in New Jersey. As a child, he copied the Saturday Evening Post covers of his idol Norman Rockwell. He went on to study art at the Academy of Arts in Newark, New Jersey, and the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn.
In 1953, Csatari worked for the Boy Scouts as the art director in the Supply Division department. He chose this position in hopes of one day getting to meet Rockwell.

I recently visited the gallery and photographed them all
Seeing the actual paintings was very moving
We’re actually celebrating Scout Sunday next Sunday. We’re cooking up a pancake breakfast after the service for the parish.
