Protagonist admires Norman Rockwell Paintings

Couple on chest saying dance teamMy protagonist, Jill, in my new multidimensional novel “Norman in the Painting” is a fan of Norman Rockwell. She falls in love with a man in a Rockwell style painting who appears from another dimension. As in most romance mysteries, obstacles block their way in being together.

An old friend of hers has to move to Idaho and offers Jill a Norman Rockwell poster. I chose the one I’ve added in this post. Like Jill, I admire Norman Rockwell paintings too and I enjoy the research to find the right pictures as I go along with the plot.

Do you have a favorite Norman Rockwell painting?

Have you experimented with Google free images to find what your characters look like or paintings that are in the story’s setting or an environment where the characters live? I find looking for images inspirational, maybe you will too.

  1. What a great premise for a book. I can’t wait to read it. I’ve always thought Normal Rockwell paintings were fun, but I’ll be looking at them more closely now and thinking of Jill.

    Love the picture, Julaina. Watch out, though — it’s real easy to get hooked on image-searching instead of writing. Trust me, I’m an addict!!

  3. My favorite Norman Rockwell painting is “The Doctor and the Doll.” My framed copy is more than 25 years old.
