  1. Mr. Wilson, I just discovered your website and your art which I immediately liked and appreciated. Thank you so much for doing the work you do. Among other things, I write a blog and one of the subjects I’ve been pursuing for several months is the curious and discordant life of Sir Thomas Malory, author of “Le Morte d’Arthur.” I would like to request your permission to include some of your images of your work in my posts, with full attribution of course. Best regards.

      Hello Thomas,

      Yes, you’re welcome to use my images, just be sure to give me an acknowledgement and a link, if appropriate. I am flattered you ask, as I had planned on doing nothing last night and ended up reading your blog instead. Loved the investigation into Thomas Mallory, and looking forward to following the rest of the story. Very pertinent to think of the rules of chivalry as laid out in “Le Morte d’Arthur”. Thank you.
