George Byrne's Original and Fan Artist Painting on the right

I was looking through Facebook this morning and stumbled upon George Byrne's post thanking an unknown admire for the Artwork he received from them. The Artist had used a recently Tumblr image George had posted for inspiration. George was chuffed, so much so he asked for the person to come forward so he could the painting for an original photographic print.  Very inspiring.

I will finish her with a great quote which sums up my feeling and I am certain many of you as well.

“Imitation is not just the sincerest form of flattery - it’s the sincerest form of learning.”
— George Bernard Shaw
