Even my husband teaches, from time to time, students basic computer graphics using a specialist computer software. So you can see that computers have a big influence in our household.
Me on the other hand, I look forward to holding a brush in my hand and standing in front of a canvas waiting to swish my arm around and see what comes of it. On many occasions I have spent hours creating a painting, looked at it , said 'nah don't like it' and then painted right over it. If I had a computer then all I would have to do is press the 'delete' key. I still prefer to use my friends the brushes, rather than the keyboard. Having said that I really rate people who create art using computers. Some are extreeeeeemely amazing, and take a long time to create.
Anyway, my husband strongly suggested that I get with the times and try. So I reluctantly got on the computer and opened up 'Microsoft Paint'. You should have seen the looks and heard the comments from my kids when they were watching me use it. I can relate to the woman in this video.
he, he, he ....... wink, wink.
The picture above is lovingly called 'My first sunset on computer'.
Do you think I have a future in computer art?
