Question No. 2: Kinkade Coming To Lake Near Us

Issue: It's all about fantasy: Development would showcase five Kinkade-inspired houses/Becky Kramer, Spokesman-Review

More: The detailed sketches paid off. After a successful pitch to the artist, Haight and two partners signed a licensing agreement this spring to build a Kinkade-themed development on 20 acres overlooking Lake Coeur d'Alene. The five homes are expected to sell for $4 million to $6 million. Each is based on a painting. The Gates of Coeur d'Alene will be the second housing development for Kinkade, a best-selling California artist known for soft-focused landscapes.

Question: According to estimates, 10 million households in this country have some kind of Kincade product. Does yours?
