I just received an email from Coynes & Co. with the new 2013 catalog attached! Here are the pages from their catalog that feature my angel products. I am in the process of setting up an account with them and will be placing my order as soon as I am approved. I will be putting these items for sale on my website before January but they will not be shipping until February. I am so excited, I can hardly contain myself!!!
Ya know, when I first started painting these angels a couple of years ago, I was met with a little bit of skepticism that "angels won't sell". But as an artist, I didn't care about that. I had an internal passion that just had to come out! I told myself, whether they sell or not is not my concern, I will continue to paint them anyway. Sometimes, we just have to do what is in our heart.......and most of the time that is our best work.
So far, the feedback has been very positive. The angel art is licensing well but time will tell if the consumer is ready for such products. I can tell you that when I am at retail shows, people gravitate to the angel art and I have a collector of my original paintings that said to me via email, "Your paintings give me such peace, and I smile every time I see one of them. This gives me many reasons to smile as I must have enough for every room of the house by now!" - Eileen, Traverse City, Michigan
That is a dream come true......that my art....my God-given gift,
brings comfort, peace and smiles to those who see it.
