|'Indian Paintbrush Study' 5x5 pastel $45 paypal|
As an artist my tools consist of paper and paints and pastels. But a computer is also one of my most important tools. Without my computer I couldn't share my work and communicate with collectors and other artists. Just think about how many things you use a computer for to help your art! So the next big question was do I want another PC or do I want a Mac?

I had gotten so used working out the idiosyncrasies on the PC that I didn't realize how much time I was wasting on tasks that could be accomplished in a better way. I am still learning things about the Mac but so far I am thrilled. My photos have never been so organized and easy to find when I need them. I am able to work on documents on my laptop or ipad and have them available downstairs on the imac through the cloud.
And of course from a design point of view, it just is better looking than any PC. It is sleek and takes up so little space and it is so quiet. My PC sounded like a jet engine running. I can actually hear myself think.
I'm glad I decided to put my old PC to pasture. It served me well but I am really enjoying the chance to a Mac!
Today's paintings are studies for a commission I am working on. They will be 20x20 pastels!
