Hey all, happy new year and all that!

Been meaning to write this for a while now but well, what can I say, I'm lazy AND easily distracted...

Anywho... I use the Youtubes a lot for music listening these days and I was opening it up and in my "recommended" videos section, I saw one of my paintings! Someone had used it as a cover image for one of those music compilation videos. As it happens I was a little bummed this day and so finding it actually put a big smile on my face. When I showed it to a friend however, he freaked out because he thought the guy who posted the video was ripping me off. It took a little bit to help my friend calm down and explain how the internet works. But that got me thinking maybe I should write something up on the subject and so that's what (finally) prompted this post.

Yeah so, in short, if you want to use any of my paintings for personal use/non-profit and post it online, go ahead! If possible, I would appreciate a link back to my Facebook. No need to ask for permission or anything like that (and my apologies to all the people who have tried over the years and I neglected to respond back to in time!).

Fine print: Please be aware however that if you are interested in using any of my work for profit, then you will need to reach me and we can discuss terms (I'm quite reasonable!). Also note that I am not relinquishing any of my rights as the creator of any of my works and I reserve the right to ask you to discontinue using my work for any reason I deem. Further, I'd ask that you not use any images that are in my gallery that were commissioned by another party out of respect for them (unless you can get permission from them too!). I also reserve the right to update these terms at any time! Lastly, note me if you have any questions or concerns... my new years resolution is to respond promptly!

Really though, I enjoy when people use my work for stuff. As I was telling my friend, I put my work up on the internet to be enjoyed. I'm not interested in trying to dictate how/where/when people enjoy it. That is, in my opinion, a waste of energy and really, I don't want to. I believe at the heart of every creator, we just want to create and have people enjoy what we create. For the those of you who enjoy it, just try to give a little back to your favorite creators either through a kind word, giving credit, a link back, and if possible/appropriate, a little $$ in their respective tip jars!

So I hope that made sense! Have fun! Love you all!
