Last year on 17th May I got a short message on Flickr. “Are your photos available for purchase. Would love to purchase one of your photo’s”, I replied back with an equally short “which one”. The reply to which was that sender was an artist and woud like to use my Elephant charge as a part of his art work. Since I don’t really sell my photographs and all of them are under a Creative Commons license I granted the permission for use of the photo with a condition that I be sent a picture of the completed work. Instead of a picture, I was promised a canvas print in return. I sent the pictures and after a while forgot all about it till last Friday I got a long tubular package in the post from Adam Scott Rote. Inside was a 30″x40″ canvas print, signed and numbered of the hyper-realistic painting called “Elephant Walk”
The photo does not do justice to the print – take a look here. Yes it is a painting and the canvas print will adorn our living room wall!
