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?

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 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. :)

The hair.... definitely my weakest area. But will have a go.
