Every Day in May, 9-10, HUGE Problem, and a Great Lunch

I find this EDIM is causing me to write more than I do about my drawings…
The prompts this year feel more personal to me.

The prompt for the 9th was something huge, and as it followed the smallest-thing-on-my-desk, I had it in my head it had to be HUGE-ON-MY-DESK.

I coulda done an elephant!  Whale!  The Milky Way!
But I drew my huge problem that sits on my desk…


I have a lemon.  I big iMac, monster puter + price tag for the business.
It has serious problems.
So serious, that when , Ronald Gehrmann from Metro MacSupport
saw how slow it was, he was stunned.
He is very very good, and will be able to back me when
I return the dang thing to the downtown Mac store.

I am going to save you all from offering me any suggestions
toward remedying this with Apple… I know my way around the dang
Apple business and Genius departments and am getting no where.
This is a big problem, and they want it to go away.
They want ME to go away.
Instead I’ve hired the BEST puter guy.
(He is a photographer too so he is also teaching me cool stuff about LightRoom.)

I am sad that Apple cares little about their business customers.
Photographers, video, graphics folks made them.
Understand, I’ll not like the MS computer I will be buying next —
I am not a MS fan.
But I can buy THREE of their computers for the price I paid for this one.
Or take a leisurely weekend at a spa to combat the stress.


And then there was lunch, the 10th day, the grace of the day,
a yummy lunch of leftover home-made organic beef and veggie stir fry.
I ate it at my desk too.


Lesson for the day, never-ever start shadows and
then finish them later when half asleep…
Omi, light and shadows just didn’t work the way I ended up painting them.
I rectified it by doing a very grey background!

So, two days of EDIM drawing…
