In my day job, we take a “Strength Finder’s” course (developed by Gallop) to find out what we’re good at, and focus our talents there.  I’ve always felt that painting the sky was a strength, but I haven’t spent a lot of time on it.  Why paint something you know?  I’d rather stretch myself, which is why I’ve been painting the figure more lately.  Well, today I gave in and painted a sky.  Hope you enjoy it!  Oh, and a quote from Benjamin Franklin that re-inforces the “follow your talent” idea:

“Hide not your talents. They for use were made. What’s a sundial in the shade?”
— Benjamin Franklin
