Technology can impact just about every facet of making and understanding art. It can provide artists with a rich source of reference material. It allows them access to a virtual canvas where they can both recreate old techniques and discover new artistic possibilities. Once the art is created, technology makes it much easier to use, share, and store the artwork and its related materials. - Mark Cuara, 2008
