Norman Rockwell Figurines... Melt Someone's Heart
A Painting You Can Hold in Your Palm
Norman Rockwell figurines... It's almost like being in the studio with Norman Rockwell and his models. Almost like watching him visualize and then paint an illustration or Saturday Evening Post cover.
There's just something magical about being able to reach out and touch a real interpretation of a work of art. You can even gain a different perspective by looking at the figurine from the opposite side.
The beauty of Rockwell figurines is that they are usually true to the original idea that Rockwell was trying to express with his art.
Virtually every well known Norman Rockwell painting has been rendered into one of these miniature sculptures. The broad selection of Norman Rockwell figurines was what really amazed me while I was researching this article.

For quality's sake, I would recommend staying with the more well known name manufacturers in figurines. I have noticed that David Grossman and Goebel figurines both tend to be true adaptations of the original illustrations.
Some of the Norman Rockwell figurines I have found on eBay include:

I have found many different new and pre-owned Norman Rockwell figurines on eBay. Many of the figurines advertised on eBay are retired or no longer being made. I have seen many bargains to be had on eBay. When I shop on eBay, I use a snipe tool to make sure I get the best price.
The Norman Rockwell Museum of Vermont also has a great selection of Norman Rockwell figurines.

Norman Rockwell Quotes:
I'll never have enough time to paint all the pictures I'd like to.
No man with a conscience can just bat out illustrations. He's got to put all his talent and feeling into them!
Some people have been kind enough to call me a fine artist. I've always called myself an illustrator. I'm not sure what the difference is. All I know is that whatever type of work I do, I try to give it my very best. Art has been my life.
Right from the beginning, I always strived to capture everything I saw as completely as possible.
The secret to so many artists living so long is that every painting is a new adventure. So, you see, they're always looking ahead to something new and exciting. The secret is not to look back.
I can take a lot of pats on the back. I love it when I get admiring letters from people. And, of course, I'd love it if the critics would notice me, too.
You must first spend some time getting your model to relax. Then you'll get a natural expression.
