Good morning everyone,
I wanted to clarify something about one of the paintings I posted. The one I titled "Imprint" I think I mislead you on it - unintentionally - but need to set it right.
This painting is actually a copy of one I saw in a book I have - I loved it and wanted to see if I could reproduce it for my own use in my home - I probably should have not posted it. But as I was painting it the meaning behind the collaged pieces below the surface and the elements on top became personal to me and I loved the way it turned out. I probably should not have titled it since it was not an original of mine, but it had meaning to me. I should have given credit for the original to it's proper creator - Douglas Bell. I did not even think about it - it was not left out to try to make it seem like it was my idea - to be honest I did not even think of it in those terms. I am learning here.
On one of the art sites I am a part of a woman, and rightly so, and made a comment about me not mentioning his name. I went back to all the sites where I posted the painting and explained. Actually my first response was to delete her comments and run!!!! I felt so bad, so guilty even thought it was not done with the intention to deceive. But I realized that it was better to be honest about it - I am not perfect - and have no intention to make others think I am. I lived most of my live trying to make others think I had it all together, to make myself look good. So, here is a real moment in my life, and I have learned a lesson.
Please accept my humble apologies - first to Douglas Bell for not giving you credit - and to all of you who may feel like I was trying to "pass one off on you"!!! That was not my hearts intent.
