For the past year I have dedicated towards this single work and it took every once to finish it to the point you see it here. Is it done? As done as any piece every can truly be. I still see so much within it that I find it very hard to step away, but I feel it is time. I set a promise and goal for myself, and for the most part, met that goal. I may come back at a later date, but most of where I want to take the painting, I honestly do not have the skill yet. I will have to explore with other paintings before this can go any further.
To those that follow this site, how do each of you cope with pulling away from a painting?
Do you ritualize it?
Do you every feel it pulling you back in?
Do you have work hanging in a gallery or sold that you still think about working more into it?
