subject verb object

This is an old painting done from life. I remember sitting out on the point with my easel waist deep in green as the morning's mist hovered over the Hudson. It has no cutting edges or metaphorical reasons for being. It exists in a pure retinal zone. I recently rescued it from my brother's house, hung it in the studio and spent some time bemused by the simple redness of the boat.

How old a painting?

How long have you been doing paintings?

That painting is about 25 years old. I've been making art ever since I can remember--seriously painting with oil began around age 18, before that it was mostly watercolor and ink.
