The Post In Which I Announce My Advancement Into The Modern Age

one of my underpaintings turned digital

Well, it's official... I've finally joined the new millenium!

Last month, for my birthday, Bob bought me an i-phone.  And, I love it!

You may be saying, "Well, of course you do!".  But, for those of you who know me best, you may be chuckling and saying, "It's about time!".  

The truth is, I have been... er, umm... "resistant" to change (particularly of the technological variety) in the past.  I am someone who spent countless hours developing my own film then watching my pictures come to life in a good old fashioned dark room.  I have always loved the smell of paper and the feel of a well worn book in my hands.  And, to say that my previous phone was a "dinosaur"... Well, let's just say that's being kind.  So, when Bob suggested that I might like an i-phone, my initial reaction was to laugh in his sweet, well-meaning face.

Another truth:  Bob knows me better than I know myself.
He surprised me with an i-phone for my birthday and I love it...  
I loooooove it!

The image at the top of this post was created on my i-phone using one of my underpaintings (you can see the original here), and the photoffiti app.  Yes, I am now a person who uses words like "app" with surprising fluency... Who knew?

p.s.  It's "Blogtoberfest" and I'm posting everyday...  
Please be sure to come back tomorrow!


  1. I got my i-phone in January this year. Prior to then I was a "mobile phone is just a phone what's the big deal?" kind of person. But now I don't think I could ever go back:) Enjoy! Cyndy

  2. Good for Bob. I adore my IPhone, and my IPad and my Macbooj! Definitely now you need an IPad (and Christmas is coming up) because you'd love the art on that.
    I got The Scribbler app you mentioned in a previous post and have found it great fun. Now I have to look for this Photo

  3. Photo fifth thing - and I used to think people were daft with their apps!
    Love your IPhone painting.

  4. I feel like I am still living in the 'dark ages' and still think of a phone as just a comunication devise! Maybe I should have a re-think after seeing your wonderful work Kristin:)

  5. i went and looked at Iphones this week too - I need a new camera and I want to simplify the credit card process - so I thought that was the way. Tmobile disappointed me though - but I'm going to get something this weekend!

  6. good for you Kristen! I hope to get an iphone one of these days, resisting it myself!
