After spending some time and effort typing my first Quick Post and being told to be sure I’d filled in all the required content (guess I hadn’t), I really don’t know if I can regurgitate that train of thought. There was mention of art, Atari 1040st computers from the mid 1980s, pigment and paper. My digital art was done back in the day on a program called Spectrum 512 and saved on slides taken with my Minolta XG7.
The only constant in my artistic output has been paint, pencils and paper. The Atari is in a landfill somewhere and was not replaced until 2003 by a Dell desktop PC, which now languishes in the basement. It now has two siblings, a laptop and a notebook. Computer art is now done rarely but elegantly using Twisted Brush by Pixara, a powerful program that has been improved and expanded so much I get lost when I fire it up. I’m still haven’t mastered layers.
Perhaps this blog will inspire me to share some of my art, now shoved in the closet and under the bed. Hope so.
