Some artists expressed that they do not have websites or facebook pages for fear that their images will be stolen. Thieves are preventing them from initiating this on-line sharing process.
Being one of the youngest in the KW Art Society, and one of the newest members, I have kept my comments somewhat quiet so far. But something passionately resonated with me during this conversation. I spoke up last night and I am speaking out today.
I believe that KARMA always prevails. I believe in my heart that my art has roots. I believe people can feel the energy of authenticity.
I refuse to allow the fear of theft to dictate my artistic sharing process.
I have had success with my art on the internet as much as I have had face to face. I will continue to share my art with as many people who appreciate art as possible....... in all venues that I feel are authentic to my art & audience.
Thieves will always find a way to steal images. They are crafty little assholes. It's their lively-hood to commit such crimes.
I personally do not have the energy or the time to fear them. I know they will never master a way of stealing my inspiration..... it lives and beats in my heart. ♥
