Environment of the Artist


In this case, the environment I'm talking about is the one that just my eyes and mind see. My content. My influences from nature. Mine are completely unique - which isn't saying much. Everyone should have different environmental influences.

There are some superlative things about my peculiar environment here in Washington State. I'll be posting about that in the next installment of the tree school.

Awesome photo. What is "photobucket"?

It is an awesome photo. I registered at Photobucket, where posted photos become common domain.

Every once in a while I'll need an illustration like this, and I also go there for animated gifs.

Does anyone have a feeling on whether I should still attribute the photographer? It is an etiquette thing, but in this instance it was some funky username.

I just used this photograph as pastel sketch exercise, as I thought the mist and central trees would be challenging tonally, I was right but found it interesting.
On attribution, having suffered from not being attributed in the past, I always can if possible, maybe not for this though as it is under a nickname and posted as free domain. In that case I try to message the artist and usually they are delighted that their work has inspired others.
Really enjoying flipping through your blogs. You're a fine artist and so willing to share.

Thanks for the comment, and the back-up on the question of attribution.

The last Photobucket I used, I was able to byline.
