I am grateful to the various artists and photographers who have generously offered their images - free to use - for personal and commercial purposes. And, if not free, they offered licenses I could purchase, or permission to use their image to embed within my own artwork.
Although they stated attribution is not required, I feel it's important to give a great big thank you to the special contributors to my art.
