Just wanted to let everyone know my computer died early- last week (power outage/surge victim). I have been scrambling to acquire a replacement and get back online! My G4 was 10yrs old & served me very well. I would have loved to replace it with a new tower, but my budget ($0) would only allow for a Mac Mini! It's about the size of a potholder (on steroids). I am happy to say that it is faster than my old computer, but sad to say that it has left my peripherals in the dust. I have been spending my days trying to find cords and converters! This has been the only downside to digital photography that I have encountered.
I have a new painting in cryostasis (in the freezer) "Octopus Car Wash"— until I can retrieve my reference photo! I tried to photo-document my "process" while working on this painting- although Im not sure it will translate that well because of the small subject matter. I will promise to do another photo-documentation when my inspiration includes a larger subject, which should be a better match for illustration purposes. See y'all soon
