Jerry8448, first of all I am reading comments about your leaving or not creating and I hope that this is not true.  I was introduced to your work a few years ago.  I thought then and think today on 10/13/17 that it was wonderful and inspirational. I understand to some degree the themes and it is your touch, your style, that takes that which has before been portrayed as frightful, fright filled, and made it filled with the possibility of wonder and awe.  

I have served in a traditional church as a minister for a number of years, I have read and studied individuals who speak of themes on a spiritual, psychological, psychoanalytical, mythical, and mythological, level for a bit and your work touches all of those levels.  I pray that you will keep at your work. I actually wanted to use your work and came to this site to find out was involved in getting permission to do so.  So with this, I will say again, my encouragement to you is to keep being creative.  Your work will stand the test of time, it is original and it has a quality that will outlast the slights that you receive today and even those of tomorrow.  And yes, if you could post something of the cost that are involved in using some of your prints in a digital booklet which will be used and likely given away for free and/or posted on line, and also for books that will be sold as well, I would greatly appreciate it. Blessings!!!

Hi. Thank you for your kind words. You can use my work non-commercially for free as long as you do not alter the pictures (resizing or cropping is fine of course, but no sparkles, unicorns, etc please) and credit me as the artist. As for books to be sold, I'd need a little more information.

Thank you very much.  I saw some of your work in a book on lucid dreaming in 2011-2012 maybe.  I am having a give away book that I is called Through the Gate to Everything Great in the Year 10 n 8 that I think I would like to use a few pictures in.  It is a spiritual strategic life planner.  Your pictures on taking trips down unknown roads, or through tunnels, or down paths are to me very much like what people are invited to do, by my planner. In other words they are asked to dream about a new future, and that can be very frightening and filled with every scary thought that has ever been planted in the psyche. But still humans have taken that first step. 

Also, I am getting my coaching business to a start and it deals with the same idea.  That is starting people off and keeping them going on a journey.  If you are familiar with the book by Joseph Campbell called "The Hero with One Thousand Faces" or on a psychological mystical level the same thing, the works of Carl Jung, or as it is depicted in movies, the movie series, Star Wars, these are all talking, imo, about the same thing. So my planner has in mind, helping those who desire to do so, to take the first step, or to dream of what a new life will be like.  So you paths, roads, look at the stars, and other items are ways of inviting people to consider the possibilities of life.  

Finally, regarding books, there are things I write, but have not sold. Not really a marketer.  I have books on the top of visualization that again some of your pictures might fit well in and work for.  As I said, I am a minister, and I understand the themes, from a number of angles. I simply see the good that a vision and visualizer can receive from coming in  contact with your art.  So that is my thoughts about books, other places as I implied, or FB, on blogs, and perhaps in videos, that might be posted on Youtube.  I will make sure I include your name, if you have a particular signature you would like, you can supply me with that as well.  I would be more than willing to display it when I can.  I do hope you will continue painting, go through whatever process you need to go through, and from my place of experiencing the Divine I would say trust God to lead and direct your life.  I trust and pray that does not offend, if it does know that  this is simply my way of saying that my desire for you is for you to have nothing but the good, indeed the best, Blessings, Seti

Just wanted to say that I've been following you for some time now, and I'm really sorry, sad and angry for what you're going through after all the hard work you've put in. I'm equally as frustrated and afraid for my own craft - who knows how far gone it's been in terms of being stolen ☹️ But i stand by you, and like you I'm one of those who'd rather weave and create rather than repost and fabricate, and i hope someday soon there'll be some sort of safeguard for us who work honest and hard. Your story strengthens me, encourages me and have also opened my eyes. Hang tight, fellow artist.

I realize it's been eons since you wrote this, and I should have answered way sooner. I actually came across your comment a month or so ago, but I couldn't think of a good reply at the time and still can't come up with something meaningful to say, but I feel i owe you a big Thank you! for your words. It's great know there are people out there that think as I do... :thanks:

It's too bad that the rewards for talent and generosity in sharing that talent are things like theft, stress, and discouragement. Your work has made me smile for years... just stopping by your gallery is always a treat. I'm sad to see you go, as it's one step more towards this place being just memes, MLP, and stolen work. But I fully understand doing what you need to do to preserve your sanity. Thank you for leaving your gallery up for us to enjoy. Some of us are actual appreciators and do find joy in real artistic expression.
