PLUS an action picture.
Notice the hat. The hat totally makes me look like a legit painter.
Here's the first watercolor done on my new plein-air easel.
I wasn't exactly in plein-air, though. I had an excellent view from the window while enjoying protection from the sun... and... you know, I painted what was in front of me and the painting was done in one sitting.
I think it qualifies.

The question every young writer at some point asks is: "What should I write?" And the standard answer is, "Write what you know." This advice leads to terrible stories in which nothing interesting happens.
The best advice is not write what you know, it's write what you like. Write the kind of story you like best—write the story you want to read.
Draw the art you want to see, start the business you want to run, play the music you want to hear, write the books you want to read, build the products you want to use—do the work you want to see done.
