I agree totally with what Nolan has just posted.

It does not matter which way you sign your name. There is no protocol on how to sign your name. Even a special mark or icon is legitimate if you so wish to sign your name.

Copyright is a very specialized subject, so, to avoid any confusion among the members, if anyone wanting to comment on this subject PLEASE clear it with either Nolan or myself BEFORE posting to the forum.

Thank you Dennis and Nolan. We continue to get quite an education at PB.  O0 For the signature, I really do like the slanted version too.  ;)

Kathy, I have changed my style and signature many times during the course of my 73 years in the art world, and I can confidently say that it has neither affected my reputation nor my sales. Any painting with my present signature starts from the time I became a professional artist (earning my living and paying taxes from it) over 25 years ago. All paintings prior to that were done as a hobby. Yes, my hobby become my job and still loving it  :yippee:

I think it is fabulous that you made your hobby such a wonderful and successful business, Dennis. The bonus is that we all benefit from what you love to do.   :smitten:
