advice please

Hi, I am wondering what other people would do in this situation?
I received the following message recently.
Whilst it’s a bit flattering at the same time I’m thinking… why would he need a high res copy and wouldn’t I be an idiot to give anyone a high res copy of any of my images… and also shouldn’t he really just be asking for permission to paint the image.. which he needs to have… doesn’t he?
Yes, I checked his page, he is a real artist.
I’m not real sure I actually want someone painting this anyhow… feeling a bit low today… maybe my judgement is impaired… what would YOU do?
Thanks

Maree..Hi, my name is XXXX…I was wondering if you could possibly send me a hi res copy of The Gathering. I’ve been looking for a new piece to paint..and suddenly I came across this. It’s fantastic …love the orange sky.
I’ll tell you what…you send me a copy of this..and I’ll send you a copy of the painting. All my color paintings are done with house paint…and right now I have a bunch of yellows, oranges and reds kicking around…I really want to paint this.
Well…it was worth a shot to ask.
Thanks
