Last night, a pleasurable exchange of emails with Sir Robin Knox-Johnston which started with my wishing him a “very happy birthday”.
Among other things he asked me if he can use the painting we created together for him and which he named, “Roaring Forties” to support a report he is writing.
By the way this iconic painting is available as an impressive co signed print on canvas, from £157 inc P&P.
Robin wrote to me starting with, “Lovely to hear from you. I want to use “Roaring Forties” for a report I am doing about the 5 dismastings in the Golden Globe 18. Are you happy for me to do so? I suspect it will get one hell of a lot of publicity and I am not selling it. It will be broadcast. Let me know.”
Of course you may use the image for the purpose you described below.
For you, free of charge, no question about that.
Usually I try and get something in return, a modest fee, or at least my name and web site mentioned.
I remember you telling me “I think it’s indecent not to make a modest profit “ so I try to take your advice !!!
For you, I’m simply pleased to help.
I’ll leave any ‘negotiations’ entirely with you.
If needed I can send a high rez copy.
