I have a few friends who use photographs as their inspiration for paintings and I have given them some of mine when they've asked, so it's definitely not an unusual practice.

What did catch my eye though, is that while the painting is a recent upload to Pixoto, the EXIF says the photo of the painting was taken in 2012, while Mr. Juliano's digitally created artwork was uploaded to Pixoto last September.

I didn't mean a reply from yourself but Pixoto.....it probably isn't wrong to paint someones picture, but politeness would have made me ask the owner

I have had many artists oil and water color ask permission to paint my photographs and I give it them in writing or send a email and they always will give credit to the photographers
