I have received a Copyright Violation notice and have had work work taken down. 

I am here to publicly apologizes to James :iconjumbola: . He is an artist whose page I frequently visit. And an artist whose work I admire. While I did not steal his work having now seen his dragonfly I understand why he thinks so. 
Dragonfly by JUMBOLA I have printed his off and compared to mine they are very close but they are not the same. For one thiing his seems to have four legs and mine has six. I also think his is better drawn than mine. my eyes are much bigger. He did not draw the segments of the abdomen, I did in detail. I try to imply the out of focus plats in the background and he has no back ground.

I did not copy his dragonfly but was using many art nouveau dragonflies and many photos of dragonflies. I love the amazing animals and have photographed them for years

Here are the ones I used from the Internet:







dragonfly. by Le-Voyageur red dragonfly by sh0ggy 

I literally have thousands of dragonfly photos to use.

In my defense I do sometimes respond to other peoples work but when I do I always credit the work.

To Survivor wip by bear48
An Elf in the Fairy Ring by bear48

I have talked to our copyright lawyer that the television station I work at uses. I showed him both the work I am accused of plagiarizing  and showed him my references. He owns the watercolor I did. He says I have done nothing wrong but that we could never prove it.

I am also being bullied for my faith. Ironically the abuse is coming from both most of sides of the  argument. 

I am getting flack from those none Christians who feel I am using DeviantArt for my personal pulpit. While at the same time I am being asked to define my faith. And yet another group flames me for having so much pornography in my gallery, After all how can I be a Christian if I make pornography? 

I am fighting dangerously deep depression and after much thought I have decided to leave DeviantArt before someone pushes me into saying something or doing something I would regret.

I have developed some good friends here I am sorry over losing contact with them but I have learned that as a incest surviver I have to take care of myself. I really have to take care of myself so I can take care of my wife.

I will be taking down my gallery in stages over the next few weeks because I plan to review all my work and make sure I have some kind of record of everything that is up here.

I will then say some private good-byes to a few people. 

Just for the record the Copyright Violation notice is a very small straw but it is the straw that broke the camels back.

Crazy Monkey Up Sunning Gecko Down
“Crazy Monkey Up Sunning Gecko Down”
9 X12 inch
Watercolor and ink on watercolor paper
All materials are archival

I have love doing pictures that changed when you look at them in different ways since high school.

If you look at this guy with the head up it is a crazy monkey hooting at you. If you turn it over it becomes a bright color gecko in the sun.

It came from me working on a series of crazy monkeys for a friend of mine.  More Crazy Monkeys to come.
