Dennis;
I read the laws for copyrighted paintings and photos, and I am wondering....when I pass, should I leave instructions for my family to burn my paintings and drawings?  Just in case when they are given to the family, that they might be tempted to sell some. If "the person sued" would they sue me and my estate or sue my children? Dilemma....what do I do with my paintings? Just keep them as pictures? Even then, they could frame them.

Cheers, Val

Just write on the back of each painting that it is a copy of the lesson by the Paint Basket. Then you are in the clear as long as you don't sell them. Also you cannot be held responsible for possible actions of other people in the future.

I have most of mine done with copywrited photos. I don't intend to sell them though. Going to start using my own photos soon instead. I have a ton of them that would make great paintings. At least i started with copywrited ones before getting better at painting things. Some things for example: this famous mill in N.Carolina i was looking at...thousands flock to see it every year and take a pic of it. Their must be thousands of photos of it all looking identical. Certain things nobody would ever know any difference.
The moment you find yourself mostly satisfied with a painting and think you'll "just quickly" do this or that, that's the moment to stop completely. Take the painting off your easel and put it aside for at least 24 hours, then reassess whether it really needs that tweak.

Thank you so much...was getting a little 'antsy' as to 'what might happen.  Will write on all my paintings TODAY!
Yes, Pat...I will get my camera out, too, and do more 'shooting'.
That clears up a lot....thanks.
