I have taken the plunge! I am a full time artist . This endeavor allows me to work on ideas that I had shelved for awhile.
I am able to go back to the photographs I took while in France and create some paintings. I also repaired my Surface 3 and bought a new pen. It's better than the first one. Now the pen has four nibs for different line weight. I'm really enjoying this machine again.
Also in my arsenal in the digital studio is a Mac Book Air an iPad and my NEW iPhone 6 plus. I didn't feely like waiting for the 7 (or spending more money).
I have 6 large canvases that are awaiting some creative genius to occur in my physical studio upstairs. I have lots of ideas.
In my professional life I am foremost an artist. I am happiest when making something. I love to "try things out" and create prototypes until I hit on something that "works"
