Woke up. Still alive. Went to work.
Found another "Whip Out" with the same issues:
So, this whole thing about finishing paintings earlier and leaving undone passages has got me all worked up. Have I killed countless paintings with overwork? Without a doubt.
Have I missed the boat on paintings that needed another layer of effort? Without a doubt.
So, will I ever know when a painting is done, or needs more work? I doubt it. Or, more importantly, am I lying to myself?
