I do appreciate people viewing,commenting on my art.I don't appreciate people,web sites using it as avatars or advertising prints.As of September7,2013 anyone posting my art on any website without my written permission will enter into a contract requiring $500.00 USD for daily use.I will actively seek and ask you to remove my art.Then I will contact your web server,Google Yahoo and Bing.
