My "big" monitor died--& I'm too cheap to buy a new one--so I'm back to my little 15" from 1992 (it was HUGE at the time).
At 400% zoom, I think I can make out the image on the cover... It's "The Creation of Adam", right?
I really like the way you fused some of your other pieces in this one to evoke an entirely different mood.

Yes....that's a small portion of the Michelangelo Sistine Chaple piece.

I do love those cold blues with the stark contrasting reds. This one is striking.

T. You're going to get a new one anyway. Sooner or later. You can either wait for the recession to bring the price down, a little, or get one now. I say, get it before you buy a whole damn new computer.

Yeah, I know. I thought the same thing over a year ago when it went on the blink. I was using the "Fred G. Sanford" (the "G" is for "'Gone knock the fool out of that thing 'til it works") method (repair tech said I could buy a new system for the labor cost of fixing that monitor), & I K.O.'ed it back in the Spring.
Prices have been dropping a lot recently. I want the vertical height of at least an "old" 24" in a widescreen. The price is getting close to where I want it, but I just got a call from an FFL dealer about a piece I've wanted for at least 10 years now (at cost plus a nominal FFL fee).
Infernal opportunity costs & limited resources...

That's no decision. You can squint a little longer.
