Computer Art by Victor Petitt

Here’s why this site is called “Oo’s Picture Place” and not “Oo’s Photo Place.” In this section, you will find computer art created by my dad, Victor Petitt.

The first picture is a lovely mountain scene which he made using the Paintbrush program in Windows 3.1. Later, he acquired a newer, more modern computer. This section features 21 beautiful pictures that my dad created during the closing months of his life.

These images may appear crude because they are pixelated, with no smoothing effect in place. The Paintbrush and Paint programs at that time weren’t capable of those things. Considering that my dad had limited tools and was dying of cancer, these images are actually quite remarkable… and a lasting treasure.

Six of Dad’s images were adapted for five of the seasonal Home page logos used on this site.
