Many tries to capture this little butterfly, but the wind buffeted blossoms and bugs alike. This one caught on a rebound swing from a gust of wind.

Past Due - As Always

Journal Entry: Sun Feb 10, 2013, 9:14 PM
A brief update since I'm ages behind in saying thank you to the generous and kind comments and favs received over the past few months. Never been busier with the transition to MAC OS 10.7. So my apologies for missing the usual social graces and selecting favorites from among the amazing art that's recently been posted. With a work schedule just beyond manageable, learning new software, keeping up with a couple of classes - always in school - and other WebSites, a paragraph is all I can do right now. It may be time to move much of the photography work from DA to a new account on Photo.com and post more Wacom work here. Still preparing content for a couple of new sites: KatuStudios.com, DCToons.com, and a political blogging site. Going to ASCAP in April to their "I Create Music" shindig and that was the reason for moving to a stable OS so that work wouldn't be lost to blue screen events.

Apparently, a sufficient number of production studios have moved to Linux or MAC and AutoDesk has responded by making all of their software available for these systems. AutoCAD, MudBox, Maya, 3ds Max, and SketchBook are now available for MAC and Linux as is most everything from ToonBoom, Pixar, and Lightwave. Music sequencing and sampling remains predominantly with MAC and Windows. It appears that the makers of other operating systems have heard that creative people can only create when they're not having to work full time at information systems in order to keep things going. The latest Windows problems: Storage drives formatted by XP and migrated to Windows 7 are likely to experience corruption of Smart data and sector loss until the drive shows as "failed". The other problem: right clicking over a folder in Explorer will cause Explorer to drop out. For now, keystroke commands have to replace the right click until this glitch gets fixed. Microsoft has at least come up with some very helpful support and user sites that were sorely needed years ago.

Anyway, sincere thanks to those who have faved images, sent comments, and waited patiently for me to respond. The Linkedin accounts are in the same state of neglect so DA isn't being singled out. BTW, I stopped by the Caesar's Palace Forum Shops when company came to town and saw a really nice art gallery of landscape photography where the works are apparently printed on silvered paper that gives the images a "lightbox" effect and prices that are high enough to pay for the silver and rent at Caesars. Enough said . . . until the next update.

Cheers :ahoy:
