TUSCAN VILLA, 20X24, OIL
I posted the study for this last week. The actual photo I used was cropped from a photo a friend purchased and framed. She asked me to paint this one for her and I agreed. I guess it was alright to do as it is not for resale. The way I understand copy writes, if it was copyrighted, is that you can reproduce, you just cannot sale. Of course, that does not explain all those paintings of Obama last January. I know all those artists did not personally take a photo of him or paint from life. Does anyone have input on this issue?
