As a historian, I would naturally like a painting of Clio, Muse of History, to hang over my desk.  I like your interpretation of her more than any other I've seen.  Is there a print of this available, say around 14" by 20," and if so, where might I look to purchase it?

Thanks.

Hi there! I came across this image, and am wondering about rights to use it on our blog? How do I go about doing that? I love, love, LOVE this piece!

Stumbled upon your work in a search for current images of the Greek Muses, in particular Clio. All of your art pieces aer beautifully done and lovely! How would I go about contacting you to request permission to use this image? I work for a small academic publisher (Ohio State University Press) and we would like to use tis image on a book cover. We'll supply a small fee, credits to you on the cover, and free books. Please contact jennifer@osupress.org so we chat more about it. Would be interested more images for future use if possible! Love your work! - Thx

:wow: Thank you - I'm very honoured!
I have contacted the model stock owner for permission but as yet have heard nothing. Do you have a time limit?

If I may offer a suggestion or two:

:bulletred:The hair doesn't look like it naturally belongs with the background (too cut out looking).

:bulletblue:Her forearm,her hand in particular, is too bright versus the rest of her body along with the background.


Glad to see people using my brushes. :)

Thank you for your help. The arm I can probably rememdy,
The hair.... definitely my weakest area. But will have a go.
