Done! (As in: my artwork is done!)

June 22nd, 2009 by jules

When Nate is done painting for a particular session he leaves the work or pushes it away.  I know when he’s done because he exclaims it…”Done!”

Me, how do I know when my piece is done?

Usually I start with an idea and inspiration, like a song or nature.  Then I like to take a turn in the piece and use chance in a Dada way to push the work in a new direction.  If I get a happy feeling, its done.  If not, I keep going or set it aside until further inspiration hits.  I know its vague, but for me its a feeling-when I feel happy, the piece is done.

How do you know when your work is done?

Do you ever go back years later and work on a “completed piece?”
