I started doing this project on June 1, 2016 and have done almost 100 paintings at this point. There is a learning curve and that helps to keep it interesting. Subject matter and composition are just some of the hurdles. A lot of the people who do this claim to do them in a hour or so. That is not true for me. Sometimes I work on one for three hours or more. However, I want to do the best I can and have to work on it before I post it to feel good.
