I'm happy with the way the rug has turned out. But then this afternoon I realized that what I laminated is copyrighted and that I need to get permission to use it. Eeeek. How could I not have realized this until now?
So, a frantic fax to the company to see if they will give me permission. Now I will have to wait for a response. Fingers are crossed. I truly am amazed at myself, that I was oblivious to this issue until today--I certainly know better. Darn. ***
Finished the work on Quandary in my personal journal (complete with lined page). I used Tri-Tone Koh-i-Noor pencils to color this. It was very relaxing to do.
*** Hurrah! The copyright owner got back to me almost immediately and gave me permission to use the images on my rug. Phew. I'm thrilled that it has worked out and grateful that they responded so quickly and kindly.
I'm a textile artist (traditional rug hooking, punch needle rug hooking, and other textile arts), a long-time meditator, a certified meditation teacher and coach, and focused on learning about the interplay of art, creativity, and mindfulness every day.
