To date, I have made 45 versions of this piece since beginning on May 28. I may still make changes to it but this particular piece will remain as is. That's one of the joys of digital art. As with block or silkscreen printing, one can make changes to future pieces. It never has to be finished.

Another artist wrote me asking what program I use for digital pieces. I use Photoshop Elements 4. The tools I draw with are the lasso and other selection tools and the mouse primarily. The paint bucket is used to fill in the colors. He told me Autocad tools are easier to use and control. But that is an expensive program and I continue to like the lack of control.
