A friend asked for a "Sunflower" by me, and I had taken this photo in my backyard.  I then literally paint the photograph on my tablet to get this final result. I really like how it came out.  The colors are so vibrant!

I did a 16"x 20" archival print ($20 rolled or $30 mounted on museum board), and a 12" x 16" gallery wrapped canvas print ($70).  Great quality, beautiful colors.   

Did anyone see Project Runway this week?  The designers were able to paint on HP All-in-one Desktop PCs to create their own fabrics!  They made it look so easy!  Most of what they were doing was very loose with broad strokes.  I was surprised at how the fabrics came out, and once they were made into clothing, it really changed how they looked!

The designers actually used a type of "brush" to stroke on the screen!  They didn't say what software they were working in.

I work in a MAC platform, using a Wacom tablet.  Here I'm being very precise with my painting.  The strokes don't always go where you want them to, it's still a computer after all!
