Personal Art

When I began this website, I was exploring, not entirely sure why I wanted one or what I would do with it.

One of the things I've been encouraged to put onto the site is my personal art: both my visual art (my photographs and my electronic creations, as well as digital copies of my non-digital work) and my literary art (primarily poetry and short stories).

As I was encouraged to do that, I decided to check out what others were doing. I was concerned with art theft and the protection of my copyrights.

As I research these topics, I encountered some interesting information and began to assemble pages to deal with this. And, I began to join organizations (typically web organizations) devoted to creator's rights (what they often call artist's rights).

This research activity has consumed my time to date and I have only now begun to add my visual and literary art to the site.

But when I do, I'll be advising everyone on my Snippets email list.

And, when I do, because of the work I've done so far, I'll be a lot "safer" in that effort.
