Kiawah Post #34
17" x 25"
Painted completely within Inkscape - January, 2020
Printed on 100% cotton paper with sand texture.
There are 2 prints.
View walking to the beach at Post #34 in Kiawah - cold day in December.
There are not many homes near post #34. Even on a summer day, this section of the beach is not crowded.
But on a cold wintry morning, only crazy people trying to walk their dogs can be found wandering around.
My sister, Joanne, is walking her Great Dane Sweetie.
Our 8 pound Bichon mutt, Katie, is tagging alone, being walked/dragged by wife Heidi.
Katie needs to take about 40 steps to equal Sweetie's one step.
As usual I'm lagging way behind - taking in all the glory of the winter season and also freezing.
There was so much detail in this painting that my normal Intel based computer locked up.
(There are approximately 15,000 objects - each blade of grass is an object.)
This forced me to purchase a more powerful CAD workstation.
Most of my newer works have much more detail and require that much computer power.
But now I combine objects together into sets which reduces the strain on the processing.
