Old piece new again
I just bought a SCSI to Firewire adapter for my OOOOoooooOOOOOooold (but large-format & awesome!) scanner so I could at last get rid of my even OLDER blue & white G3 Mac and hook the scanner directly to my newer-ish computer. The whole hook-up not only worked, but it was about 10 thousand time easier than I thought it would be. It was just a matter of connecting the two with the Firewire cable, installing VueScan software that I bought on their site and POW!. Should have done it years ago!
Anyhow, to test-scan something I grabbed an old oil painting that I did for THE DROWNED years ago and scanned in a portion of it. It was a piece that I liked certain parts of, but never got it to look just right. I was looking at it earlier and started messing with it in Photoshop over coffee this morning and like it a bit more now. It's still NOT fit for publication in this state or anything, but I do like it enough to slap it up here.
Lastly, today should be the final day of our 100+ degree heat wave -- relief is in sight!
