30 years over 100

Decided to figure out how many portraits I've completed over the past 30 years: over 100. I look at everyone of those as learning experiences, some came out great, some did not, but all were helpful to get me to where I am now. I am presently working on a double portrait, 3 individual Okinawan Eisa dancing children paintings, 1 single portrait and my Christmas card painting, with 5 others waiting to get finished. My goal now over the next 30 years, God the Father through Jesus willing, I will complete 700 - 1000 portraits. I can see that it can be done with the new acrylic classical process I am using now. Hope to have something posted in a couple of weeks(this process does still take time but much faster than the past processes I've used, other than just drawings.

Thank you Pattie for this word of encouragement! You have always given me a good word at just the time I needed to get one. Thank you again.
