I've been messing around with my new camera. I wanted something with more than my previous 4 pixels and considered a new digital SLR, but the price lead me down the path of an advanced point and shoot with a built-in zoom and the ability to make manual adjustments. I've photographed this little cow painting over and over again trying to reach the magic moment when I was completely satisfied. I'm still not there and can't decide whether it is the camera or my monsterous lack of skill. It might even be a little of both. I know professional photographers can create reproductions that are difficult to differentiate from original paintings, but to me, my little oil paintings still looks better in person. My husband says I'm a perfectionist and I'll never be satisfied. I will keep trying. This little painting, one of my efforts at getting the perfect photo, was listed at the Small Impressions Gallery, but has recently sold. It looks a lot better in person. It is 4x6 inches on a canvas panel.
