Copyright Bandits

Although copyright laws prohibit the copying of an artists work without that artists permission there are always individuals who seek to gain economic benefit by stealing other's copyrighted material. With technological advances in copying technology and with extremely low labor costs in some less developed parts of the world artists and buyers of art must be particularily vigilant to ensure they are not taken advantage of.

Linda Rossin Finalist in Artist's Magazine Competition

Linda Rossin

Washed up

The 15x30 oil painting "Washed Up" won 2nd prize in the Artist's Magazine's annual art competition in the "Animals" category and it will be featured in their December issue. This painting also was in the 2003 Arts for the Parks Top 100 National tour.
The painting depicts a beautiful Loggerhead Turtle that had washed up with the tide at Cape Hatteras National Seashore and a nearby Seagull is eyeing it longingly. The Turtle had plastic wrapped around its flippers that inhibited its ability to swim and so it drowned. A stark reminder that garbage can kill.
