PICTUREBALM is a portable, interactive, LISP-based language system for graphics applications programming. PICTUREBALM's design and initial experimental implementation is described from the point of view of both the user and the language system implementor. The approach of extending a LISP-based language by adding graphical operations was chosen because many of the recognized requirements for graphics programming languages are standard features of LISP-like systems. Future work is proposed.
