Butterfly Rainbow Mandala with Einstein
I have not been keeping up with new posts to this site and am probably not going to be able to anytime soon. If you are interested in downloading any of my designs not posted here, ask and I will make it available. What I have posted serves as a sampling of my work.
This site can serve another function. I have posted an image with a quote of Einstein's. He has several quotes which go well with my theme of unity of science and religion. Zazzle removed my post after the Einstein copyright holder objected. I tried to get permission to use the quote, but was told I couldn't afford the licensing. I am sure they are right.
I can use Einstein quotes as long as they are not being offered for profit. So this site can act as a place where I can make this and other designs available which cannot be sold for profit.
Here are my favorite Albert Einstein quotes, but you may find others you like:
Albert Einstein Quotes
There are two ways to live your life:
one as though nothing is a miracle; the other as though everything is.
Imagination is more important than knowledge.
We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of logic we used to create them.
No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.
Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.
If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.
I will have to wait another 30 years for these to become public domain. There may be other favorites you have whose quotes are not yet in the public domain. I will be happy to pair them with an image of your choice and offer them here for free. The general rule is that it takes 70 years after a person's death, for their work to become public domain.
The other thing that I can use this site for is to offer free downloads of my illustrated thought of the week. I post it on Sundays on facebook and So Act. If anyone is interested, I can make any of them available for download as it is a free service I offer.
