Art is my Happy Place

We need to feel our own happy experience. Allow the stress to be on the back burner. Enjoy the freedom of not being in control. This form of painting has allowed that for me. I hope you will follow along with me and maybe find your freedom. Allow yourself to let go and see what will happen.

It is the weekend here and now for me. So I’m gonna make this a quick post, an encouragement to all Be HAPPY!

Copyright Infringement

Hello friends and fans. I am sad to report that I was recently in a situation that was as close to infringement as I ever want to get. I’m a member of an amazing group on Facebook where we learn and share ideas about Acrylic pouring. I decided to try to do a series of 4 season clocks similar to one of my first acrylic pour paintings of Fall leaves looking up from the forest floor.

I posted the summer trees circle in the group and was excited with the responses. Only to wake in the am to find a message telling me that another artist had posted my painting alongside hers stating that “she must be a good artist cos someone tried to copy her work”.

Well not only did I not copy her art, but if there were a forgery it would be hers. I had actually never heard of her before this accusation The fact that she posted my work, disrespectfully I might add, gives me much room for legal revenge.

I will say that I do not have intention to pursue any revenge at this time. But would appreciate an apology.

For all artists who follow my blog I hope you see this as a warning keep your eyes pealed some artists may not be as respectful of others as you are. Copyright infringement can come in different ways. Not just a copying but posting your work without permission and proceeding to falsely accuse is a big No No in the art world.

Hope you enjoy my summer forest looking up painting. And if you would like to attempt to create one similar I would love to share some tips.

Please share if you have ever encountered a similar issue. Have an Awesome Day!
