Friday Feature: Da Vinci

Virgin and Child with Saint Anne by Da Vinci

To be a renaissance man is to be a jack of all trades.  Leonardo da Vinci was a... painter, sculptor, architect, musician, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, and writer.  And that is just what we know about.
Fetus by da Vinci
How well can we truly become an expert in any one thing without taking away from other skills?  Do these passions feed off of each other?  Sometimes I feel like I need to focus more.  Tally up those 10,000 hours.  Polish it until it shines. And...

Quality is better than quantity.

Then again da Vinci inspires me... 
his prolific work and her smile. 
Mona Lisa by da Vinci
I love to see you smiling.
