Exactly one year ago I posted the current state of my large (4' x 12') Yellowstone oil painting project on my Google+ page. Since a year has gone by, I felt it would be good for me to show everybody how it has been progressing. I don't get to work on this full-time, but I do put as much free time into it as I can -- by my calculations I put in roughly 300 hours on this in the last year.
Most of the people who see me working on it think I am crazy, but every day I put into it I feel like I am accomplishing measurable increases in quality -- so I plan to keep going. Maybe this time next year it will actually be done.
