A Brief essay dealing with attitudes toward Traditional Realistic Paintings, Pastels, Colored Pencils and today's Digital Art Media Did you know the Greek word "Photography" means "Painting with Light"? Today with the advent of computers it truly lives up to it's name. Due to developments in Art and Technology, combined with a general lack of public education, I contend that a broader definition of painting is needed than that which is found in common usage.
In addition to his mastery of traditional realistic art media, Howard David Johnson now combines dr awing, painting, photography, and digital media with more than thirty years of experience in these fields to create his Realistic Art Numèrique in 21st century paintings and pictures. Announcing Art Numèrique -an exciting merger of traditional visual art and cutting edge technology... a new art form for the twenty- first century... Art Numèrique is not limited to realistic art but also offers limitless horizons for everything from cartoons to abstractions. It is the most dramatic development in the visual arts since the Renaissance. I n the words of Al Jolson in the movie world's first talking picture" You ain't seen nothin' yet!"
