        • I guess I was distracted when I read your original comment. I must have been looking at “faint paw prints…” at the time, since I made that image a png to get the effect I wanted.
          I’ve been trying to use Asian art with my Japaneses poetry. One site I use is the Japanese Woodblock Print Search at That links to the original source, so I use that, and frequently it takes me to the Museum of Fine Arts Boston. Once I become familiar with an artist, I’ll just go straight to the museum site to search. If the museum believes artwork is now in the public domain, they actually have a download button.

        • That’s interesting (and helpful). Oh, I can get lost looking at art on the internet.
          The Boston Museum has a wonderful and varied collection. My younger daughter was in Boston for 5 years for school and work so I was able to visit it many times.
