It's a question everyone has asked: How do I know when I'm done with this piece of art?
I wish there was an easy and scientific way to know that. Unfortunately, it's more of a gut feeling. My favorite way of explaining it came to me via Jenny Doh who said she got it from Jennifer Mercede: Knowing when you're done with a work of art is equivalent to the answer to the question, "Do you need to poop?" I can't tell you if you need to poop. Only you know the answer to that one. The same thing is true for your art work. You just get that feeling when *you* look at *your* art.
Other people may feel differently about where you stop, depending on their personal style. But, I think it's important to listen to the voice inside your own head.
Today I thought I'd share the evolution of a painting. I worked on this piece over ten days or so (I often take photos to help me "see" the overall composition a bit more easily).
And one last detail photo so you can see all the lovely layers of color and pattern:
Thanks for stopping by!
