    Recently, one more Mona Lisa has been found, which one is the original? Leonardo de Vinci was a prolific painter.

    True, but one had to come first. Use Carbon 14 dating.

    Fascinating story.

    I would let it go. We dont need to solve every mystery. Leave something to the imagination.

    I haven't oil painted for years. Too many dogs and no dedicated Art studio for oil painting plus I just didn't have the time for many years while raising children and maintaining a fairly large business. Perhaps after Rod gets my shop done I will paint a bunch of empty canvases that have been around for years. I do still sculpt and do a few things in acrylics from time to time. I quenched my artistic nature by painting windows for holidays for years but health prevented that for some years. I'm hoping I can do that this year health permitting, We'll see when the holidays roll around.

    If we were farther south I'd like to try more cement sculpting where I didn't have to worry about paying a huge electric bill for the kiln, I could really get into this type work. I have done a few things but it gets way too cold here to invest too much time in outside projects.
