I wish I had skills some people have. Yea, I can do most anything mechanical if I really want to do it. I have to remind myself I can see the potential in a pile of rust and turn it into a almost new looking woodworking machine and many can't.
But when it comes to simple artistic talents I am really lacking. I have an eye for it but not skills at creating it! I wanted an outline of the 3 leaves I have used in my business logo. I wanted it for several reasons and one big one was so I could make a stencil so I could paint my logo on my boats. My old one did not lend itself to stencils.
I finally got something and here is the finished product. Doesn't look quite like what I had in mind but it bet it took me two hours to get the outline of leaves looking this good. Of course it looses some of the detail when it reduced in size too. Making me less happy with it.
I still need to play with the colors and find something better than black but I was just happy to get it to this point. I so envy people with talent that could have done that in 5 minutes!
