Sorry for the big ¬©RLF on the art work. I was a victim of art theft a while back. A group of art pirates from China had gone to my website and stole several images and posted them on etsy.com & Ebay. I received an email from etsy.com saying they had closed the account and were trying to track down the parties responsible. The lady at etsy.com told me that they probably took images from my site and had artsits reproduce my work (Rip off paintings of my work), then they would digitally capture the art and offer giclee prints at reduced prices. Apparently etsy.com has software that is like facial recon and will search the internet for images that match the submissions they get, that is how they found my pirated work on their site and they were kind enough to contact Ebay about the work being stolen and forged. I am working on a certificate of authenticity… more to come..
