Enough Already

Sometimes when I reach the end of a painting, I am inspired to add just a little bit more here or there for some extra "kick." Like doing so will just improve it. It's finished, right? This is often a mistake. There's a fine line between a finished painting and a mushy blob of acrylic splat. A "finished" painting can suddenly become an ER canvas patient on the verge of being painted white and put on the shelf for later.

Unrelated: I have some new small ones in the shop. :o)

I'm working on finishing up some big ones. It's been too long. I have very little space in here. I also have really strong emotional attachments to one, so I'm just staring at it instead of finishing it.
