Team EBSQ: Must Have Monday

Technology – a wonderful thing. With the invention of microchips, circuit boards, and digital data – artistry took a high-tech step to a new realm. It opened creative doors with another way to express ones artistic nature. Who knows what will be the next outlet for our creativity – anyone care to guess?

Art á la carte: Carolyn Schiffhouer

To me, Digital Art is the wave of the future, much as Photography was the wave of the future in the 20th century.

Although I have had a long interest in the arts, I came to the digital world later in life when I discovered a graphics program in my computer!

Digital art is a challenge to manipulate the technologies to do what you want them to do, but that is what makes it my passion.

As children they amaze and bewilder us. Then school tells us how and why they happen.  As adults  they still bring a sense of awe and wonder. Take a moment and think back to the last time you saw a rainbow, click your heels three times and say “R-O-Y-G-B-I-V”.

Green. From the natural patina of copper, to the tiniest bits of chlorophyll it is a color that has long symbolized nature and growth. It’s part of our culture: Green with envy, Greenbacks, Going Green, Green M&M’s, Green Thumb, Green Room, and  Greenhorn, just to name a few.  What does “Green” mean to you?
