I’ve been beta testing a new art app – Pikazo

And what to do now?????? Just saw what you are seeing and the color is way off. Delete post? Leave it up and  try to correct it? Pikazo knows how to do it right, but man, I can sure mess up it up. So I tried correcting my mistakes but the color is still not like my painitngs. You know what? Go to Pikazo and you’ll see the true color of these things. If I want to post on the internet any of my art work, I’d better try using white paint on a black piece of paper. Maybe that will work for me.

Karl Stiefvater, the app’s St. Louis-based inventor and his business partner, Noah Rosenberg asked a group of friends to beta test a new app. Lisa, wife and behind the scenes worker bee invited me to join the secret group. We weren’t given much instruction – just jump in and see what the app can do.  This app is amazing. I started out with a picture of one of my self portraits, then paired it with the style of a preset artist. I tapped the paint ! button and waited and soon Pikazo sent me a  painting based on the information from my two choices. But there is more! Under style there is a custom button. You can put in your own image, any kind of image from your photos or the internet. I put in one of my paintings. You are not limited to selfies in picture. Try anything, Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. That’s the fun of it. The app eggs you on to make just one more picture. The results are fantastic. Go over to the Apple app store and pick it up. It’s really fun.drawing glasses
