A Flattering Destiny

Do you realize that when you publish your art it goes into Google's database of images?

Montreal Cityscape, watercolour on paper, 9" x 12" (click to enlarge)

Well, a few months ago I received an email from the organizer of a conference of the History of Economics Society, which was to take place in Montreal. He had found it on Google, and he wanted permission to use it on their website.

The conference took place in June 2014, but as of today, the website is still up. Here is the link:
