Oh, yeah that does put a bit of weight on the mind. Well at least (from what I can tell) you don't really have a creative block, just a money one.

onizetsu666 Well I don't think money can be a limit in artistic expression. For me if I am getting paid to do something, I basically try to make something that will put a smile on their face (I would do it even if I was not getting paid but that is pretty much automatic). THAT I feel can be my real payment. I love making things for people that they will enjoy so the money is just a bonus.

Mel_Robertson ha! well I don't hate money, money allows me to pay council tax (UK) which in turns keeps me out of jail lol

Like I said, it's about money

believe it or not the money I derive from my art is forced on me by way of contract.... I'm locked legally into a written agreement with a musical records label till June this year (which happens to be my birthday month also)!!!
and I can't wait to escape it lol

Bushcraftonfire In my mind a watermark is NOT about money.. and I'm not sure why you would think it is. It's about protecting my work. Maybe that would be so no one else would take my work that I would freely give.. and try to sell it as their own for profit, for example.

As a side note.. you say that the "motive of money is the true enemy of artistic expression", but just a couple of posts ago you said you sold paintings. I, personally sell work, and have no problem with that.. but where is the median?

Mel_Robertson To me the motive of money is the true enemy of artistic expression.
What exactly am I sanitizing?

Bushcraftonfire I'm curious as to why you "wouldn't dare" watermark your work?
