Entry #2 How to Sit in the Chair (don't laugh)

     It may seem funny, but one of the first things that I had to create was "How to Sit in the Chair".  This picture shows  the product of my trial and error.     The Cintiq 21ux is big and a bit too heavy for one's lap AND it must work in tandem with my other two monitors.  How to to sit? 
     My answer was to pull my chair under the desk enough to rest one leg of the wacom tablet on the arm.  The other leg is on the desk and the entire experience I call "getting in the cockpit".  I need to get very intimate with photos painted for Strength in Perspective

Entry #1

Paul and I have been photographing places & applying digital nuances to images since 1994!  We have embraced the computer revolution at every turn.   Our website, Strength in Perspective, has enabled me to organize our images into galleries from which clients (restaurants, medical clinics, and working environments of all types) select wall art they rent or buy.

A few years ago I plunged head long into computer photo painting with a pen and wacom tablet, using Photoshop and Corel Painter.  I decided to create a blog to share some of the tricks I've learned throughout my struggle to make canvas paintings from photos we take.

I'd love to hear from you about the passion we share...the computer, the image, and the feeling of mastery.
