Vinny a year ago we'd be happy for u to use the photo as a painting reference, no payment required but we'd love to see the finished product! Cheers. 2 years ago

Hi Vinny,
Is there any way I can use your photo of the Major Mitchel as reference for a painting? Is this something you do, do you have a payment option for this?
