  9. i don't understand how an artist can be accused of plagiarism when they simply garner inspiration from a found photo... a new concept for me & i need to research further, but my lord... how can hundreds & hundreds of unique brush stokes on a canvas that belongs to a particular soul be considered a copy of an image that's been captured on film...
    i guess if credit isn't given to the original photographer, but even then... a thank you for the inspiration seems to be enough. interpretation is so not plagiarism to me... but once i learn more, perhaps i'll alter this perspective🤷🏻‍♀️ IMAGE: Opium | Bob Dylan http://www.thedailybeast.com/bob-dylan-vs-his-art-sources-how-singers-paintings-compare-with-originals
