Rags Picked

Ok, so I'm looking at Manet's Ragpicker, the namesake for the last painting. Crop and flip, Georg Baselitz style (strange-ify it). Study. Take notes.

Geek Alert. I confess: I love the Newton MessagePad 2100. And Damn Apple for spiking it from the line.

I tried to photograph the screen, but this camera can't capture the beauty that is the Newton. I was taking notes for the next works on paper. I like the stylus/touchscreen. The drawing function es muy sympatico. And the handwriting recognition is excellent. Tons of functions, all interlinked. instant on. Internet, Fax, yadda yadda.

It was years ahead of it's time.
