Eyes Open Communications
"Gunboat Diplomacy," ©2000 Eyes Open Photography, digital art almost wholly rendered in Photogenics®, a wonderful paint program for the Amiga platform by Paul Nolan. For years I dinked around with programs like DPaint in 4,069 colors, failing to get what I wanted. Then I 1) bought a 24-bit GVP Spectrum graphics board and 2) bought Photogenics® when I saw Nolan demo it at Amiga2K in St. Louis last year. When he showed how it could "paint with fire," I admit I was hooked. This painting started out as my first experiment -- the triangle, the shaded sphere -- and ended in a sci-fi commentary on my second divorce, I guess... I really dunno what it is. The image of me and my ex wife (used with her permission) was digitized with Digi-View.
I'll be putting up more new work in the future, so stay tuned!
