Okay, here I am with my head in my hands. I have been guilty of reacting too
quickly and not waiting for a balanced perspective in the matter. I am truly
humbled and I agree with Mr. Kessler when he reminds us that the law is the
law. Obviously, we cannot sell work that has been made directly from the
images created by other people. Duh! Artists exist in all facets of life.
Some artists are image makers and some are quite successful at selling those
images. Often, the greatest artists never sell their work because their work
is disturbing, sad, grief stricken, weird, "off the wall", etc. Not all art
makes us feel good. And some artists are critical by nature. In my case, how
ever, I jumped before I could see my landing. Sorry.
