This painting was done for the cover illustration for IEEE Software Magazine.  The topic of the issue was software created by piecing together software from different applications into another, working whole.  I was so pleased by the concept that I decided to make the original painting much larger than I typical have for this publication.  Also, this was the first time I tried to created so many different "representational" things in one painting, so the size certainly gave me some extra control.  Of course, this is quite a departure from my typical, to this point, fine artwork, but maybe it is just another door opening!
