Work in Progress ... 30" x 48"
Thank you, thank you, thank you. You guys really are amazing! The outpouring of kind thoughts from my blog post yesterday and suggestions on how I should deal with my unfortunate situation were wonderful! I cannot begin to tell you how much I appreciate it!
There were over fifty questions emailed and messaged to me privately. The number one question was "Why haven't you revealed the name of "your agent"? Many of you felt very strongly that I should go public with her name so that I could prevent any of you from doing business with her. I don't really feel comfortable trashing her name publicly but here is what I will do. If any of you are considering going in to business with a female art licensing agent, fell free to email me her name and I will tell you if you need to shy away. I promise!
A lot of you thought I should try small claims court, which could be an option down the road. I haven't given up as I am diligently trying to pursue something with the publishing company that sold the designs to Hobby Lobby. There is one thing I feel very strongly about. Both the publishing company and Holly Lobby have done nothing wrong. So I won't be causing them any angst, I promise.
Part of me thinks I just need to chalk this one up to experience and not lose too much sleep over it. There is a tiny part of me that is proud that all of the Hobby Lobby stores are selling prints of my art. Right?
Either way, this situation I am in is truly a "work in progress". Just like my painting pictured above. I took this photo after applying (with a palette knife) about three layers of paint. Knowing me, I will probably add three or four more before the painting is done. Stay tuned as I will continue to share progress with my "works in progress" here on my daily blog!
And thanks again to all of you for being so great. You rock!
