Looking to brighten up your wardrobe this Spring with a splash of color? Or perhaps you are looking for a very special gift for a very special person? For less than the price of a steak dinner or a bouquet of flowers, you can buy one of my beautiful Wildflower Ties that will be enjoyed for years to come! Browse my online store to see all of the great designs available and place your order. Soon you'll have a piece of Linda Calvert Jacobson art to call your own that's as functional as it lovely.

I haven't written about my art licensing in a while so I thought I post an update today. I continue to pursue licensing my wildflower art for product lines.
After 4 years of attending expos in New York and California, I now have an agent who is representing me at the major licensing trade shows. Last year I signed with Artistic Designs Group, which is based in the U.S. but deals both nationally and internationally. They will be exhibiting in the License and Design section of the upcoming Craft and Hobby Association expo in Anaheim, Calif., which was where I first met the agency owners a year ago. They have a full range of shows lined up for the Spring 2010 season, including: Halloween and Party Expo, Houston (by appointment only) Jan. 23; CHA Winter Show Anaheim, CA (Exhibiting-Booth # 2734) Jan. 24-27, 2010; Licensing Gallery at the New York Gift Show, NYC, NY (by appointment only) Jan. 31 - Feb 3; International Home and Housewares Show, Chicago, IL (by appointment only) March 14-16; and Surtex, NY, NY (Exhibiting-Booths 603,605) May 16-18.
Meanwhile, three of my wildflower designs have been picked up again for a line of limited-edition watches that will be sold in the UK this summer. This deal is through my UK agent, Eaglecrown. This is the third year that my designs will be featured on watches and sold on UK TV!
More licensing deals are in discussion and I hope to making more announcements in the months to come. My wildflowers continue to lift spirits and make people happy...and that thrills me to no end!

The Wilson County News, a wonderful community newspaper based in my hometown of Floresville, Texas, has very kindly purchased one of my paintings and donated it to the Sacred Heart School there to be auctioned off during the school's Wine and Art Festival on Jan. 16. The acrylic painting of wildflowers, "SPRING SURPRISE," measures 24x36 and is in my signature style...splashy, colorful and happy! To read more about the Sacred Heart School Wine and Art Festival and how you can purchase tickets for this very special fund-raising event, visit the Wilson County News online.
