The Painting: I did this right before we moved in acrylic.  I am STILL not painting.  I have to paint tomorrow or I will go into withdrawals, plus I am pretty steamed yet about Jennifer. Hopefully you  saw my announcement yesterday. This woman decided it was all right to steal my photos online and adjust them in Photoshop and show them as her work. This is my painting from last fall 2009.

This is another image she took from my blog to use.

The Thought:  How could I NOT address honesty and integrity?  In the same breath I have to practice forgiveness at a point as I work through this.   Next I will be sending something through my attorney.  At first yesterday I gave her all day to contact me or remove it from the internet immediately and no response has come.  I realize we are to turn a cheek when we are attacked, but I have to draw a line at something this blatant when it affects me so deeply.

I truly feel sorry for folks like this as they will never know the joy of self expression.  They remain immersed in the saddest part of wanting to create, and drowning in their in ability to be original and and follow the passion of what is inside. From this point praying for her to embrace the gifts that God has given to her is important. Copying other artist's work or in this case, stealing my images and fraudulently representing them as her own is the lowest of the low for an artist.

We make our own path in life and generate our own positive or negative energy. No one needs to do it for us...we do it to ourselves in our actions and words. 

The Son is the radiance of God's glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.”- Hebrews 1:3

Laurie I am so sorry to see you struggle with yet another individual taking your work and misrepresenting it. You are such a gifted artist -- not to mention special individual -- that I hate to see this happen. I am sorry Ms. Hargrove made this unwise choice, and I hope your lawyer makes her see the light. And fast!

It does sound like you need to address the situation with her. It's not just about you - she is violating rules that exist to protect all creators of art.

Are you sure this Jennifer is a real person? There is not anything else on that blog. It is just hard to believe that someone would blatantly steal your art and post it as their own! In any case - your work is so unique - anyone who is into equine art would recognize your original paintings instantly. They are absolutely gorgeous!
