Good News Everybody.
By my specifications this is my 1000th painting and post. Had I spent 10 hours on each and every painting, I would consider myself proficient with this skill. (I am of the belief that 10,000 hours crafting a skill puts you somewhere in sight of what you can be.) I don't lie to myself and say that I have spent 10 hours in each, maybe 4 or 5. It works out to about 250 post a year for 4 years. Thats 5 a week. I believe I see improvement in my work. I guess I will keep doing this for a while. Honestly, I hope to paint on my dying day.
What an extraordinary life. I love the way these gulls are just...".in your face".
