Saturday Special: Read the Caption

Sometimes I wonder why painters paint a landscape from a photograph without experiencing the landscape themselves…. The past week I got several requests (8 to be precise) to use one of my pictures for a painting. The painting will be seen as art but what about the original photo? Just wondering…. 😉


My policy is a such that for R 250.00 I will email the artist a large Jpeg-file (without copyright notice) under the condition that the copyright remains with me but that the artist can use the image for his/her own purposes. Even a photographer (with a small fortune invested in equipment and software) has to make a living….
