Hi Richard, I just received my copy of the International Artist Magazine and was so excited to see my painting "At the Beach" in this issue. What an opportunity you offer us when you critique our work. I thank you again for your gentle encouraging critique.

Thank you Richard. Yes always exciting to sell something you work so hard on and actually get to meet the person who bought it. When the gallery sells you never meet the person.

Hi Richard,  

You probably already know all this, but I got this very good article on copyright free photos in my in-box from Art Tutor.  Here is the link:  

https://www.arttutor.com/blog/201611/where-find-legally-free-reference-photos-your-art-part-2-2?mc_cid=f04a78ccc9&mc_eid=8773751e4f

I don't know how to share it on this website but I think lots of the members would be interested.  

Cheers,

Tammy
