I am a professional artist and have been a member of the Cowboy Artists of America since 1973. Throughout my long career I have allowed others to publish reproductions, and I personally have published reproductions of my original artwork. Additionally, images of my artwork have been published in advertisements for events, books, shows, etc. Throughout my career it has been my practice to retain the copyrights on these reproductions and printed images of my original artwork, and also to retain the copyrights on the original artwork that I sell. Note: My original artworks include but may not be limited to: drawings, paintings, sculpture.
I do not allow images of my artwork, regardless of the image being of an original piece of my art or of a reproduction of any type, to be posted on eBay or other similar auction sites. Please do not contact me asking that I make an exception to my policy, as should I grant permission to one I would have to grant permission to all.
I have a link to my personal website and the Cowboy Artists of America website on this page. Any and all images of my artwork, original or reproduction, as well as any text/content about me on these and other websites, images/text used in promotion of my artwork - not limited to and including catalogs of art shows I have participated in, may not legally be copied and/or posted elsewhere, and/or be used for any other purpose(s), without my knowledge and consent.
I have worked extremely hard to establish a career in the competitive world of fine art. This is not a hobby. This is what I was born to do. My artwork has been my single source of income and how I have supported myself and my family for almost forty years. By posting my policy here, I ask that my rights, both as an individual and as an artist be respected, and I thank you in advance.
