My name is Shirley Morse Napier. I modeled in the painting, At the Vet, when I was a junior at Bennington High School, Bennington, Vermont.
My English teacher and her husband are in the painting at well.
I have a note Mr. Rockwell sent me a few years before he passed away. I have cherished the memory of having met this amazing man who was not only talented, was kind and personable, a people person.

Shirley, thanks you for that wonderful entry.
I am having difficulty deciding which character you modeled. Which one is you?
Also what were the names of your English teacher and her husband?
Do you remember any of the other models for the painting?
It must have been truly remarkable to have posed for Norman Rockwell. How many pictures did you pose for? How many photographs did he take of you?
Please tell me more, whatever you can remember.
Thank you again!
Remember to check back often.
