Linux Foundation Oil On Canvas Painting




After submitting my design for the Linux T-Shirt contest I was inspired with good energy to paint.

I have a finished 18 X 24 Oil On Canvas painting I'd like to donate to the Linux Foundation.

I have e-mailed the Foundation with a Dear Linux Foundation etc. e-mail asking the Representative if they would like to view the painting.
info@linuxfoundation.org

I'd like to hear what others think-

How and where would I post it so all Linux users could view it?

I used GIMP to transform / rotate the painting and it is still on it's side...Anyone know why?

I have no idea about the GIMP issue. I would try again, maybe doing a "Save As" rather than a "Save" after I do, so I can compare the two images.

I'd love to see the painting if you would be willing to post a link to it here (but if you want to keep it under wraps for a while, I certainly would understand).

I'll have to do some Googling around to find a good place and than I'll post the link with sincerity.

Would pastebin be a good place to start?

Nope, pastebin is for text, not images.

Someimtes wikipedia is useful for stuff like this-

I be having a good look at the terms and conditions for any image hosting site you might use. Some of them have a 'if its uploaded, we can do whatever we want with the image' policy.

When I opened a new account with Photobucket I was ( pretty sure ) that I copied the link correctly.
It bugs me that it is not correct. I will look into learning more as I'm eager for all to view.

The painting took about 3 days and I wouldn't want it all to go to waste-

I think that there is something that has been left either undone or perhaps as I mentioned above; a mistyped letter-

I was able to find out that photobucket and flickr are good places for images.

Do you mean that the link is broken and you were not able to see the painting?
Exactly.

I may be out of line and if so I apologize, but if you want to email it to me, I'll upload it to my site and send you the link and you can do with it what you will.

I fixed the problem with help.

Here is the corrected link:

I painted the painting to donate it to the Linux Foundation but they are not responding-

What do you think?

Interesting; it sort of sneaks up on you. I downloaded it so I could look at it in a larger size.

I think the reduced size on my screen does not do it justice.

Heaven knows how much unsolicited mail the Linux Foundation gets, legitimate and otherwise. I'd give them at least a week.

Not my sort of thing to be honest.

As far as a T-shirt design goes, IMO-

Too many colours. Simply a screenprinting problem. Ever different colour requires another screen, with all the setting up, stuffing around and equipment size increases that takes. Most t-shirts are 4 colours or less for that reason. BTW, I used to be a screenprinter.

The message gets lost in the letters.

Reproducing the texture from oil on a t-shirt is very difficult/impossible as well.
