The idea of free software, free content and free mind if something what I like and support.
I use free Opensource software where it is possible and applicable. In the same time I have nothing against the proprietary software. I understand artists, who need to get money from their work and who can not share their works free.
Some reasons why I decided to share my images free
- I like when you like it. I have friends and relatives, who like my works. I wouldn't take money from them.
- I understand that I'm not Van Gogh. Vincent Van Gogh was a great-great artist but he used to have big-big problems with selling his works during his life.
- If you use my pictures and you like them, you may want to support me or to purchase some prints or originals.
- If you use my pictures, you probably spread them around in your world. Then some other people may know about them.
- I don't like the traditional "professional way of the artist". I want to try something different. I started after 40. I'm different anyhow.
What can I do with these pictures?
- You can download, store, save, copy-paste, share these pictures, etc.
- You can make adjustment, editing, changes in these pictures if you need it.
- You can remove the area with my signature if you can't avoid it.
- You can print, put on the wall, use in you business, decoration, advertizement, posters, almost everywhere you like.
What are the restrictions?
- I ask you not to grab the authorship.
- I ask you not to use my pictures in the illegal way or for illegal purposes.
- In case of a doubt, you may send me a note or a question.
- If you mention my name in your project, it will please me, of course. Though, you don't have to.
If you like the result of your use
- Send me a line of inspiration. I need it.
- Share with me some pictures or other info - just to know. I will not blame you even if you double-cross my painting.
- If you feel that my works correlate with your attitude, you can get some original works. I'm open to cooperation.
