You may think it is a simple thing for an artist to say "I'm finished!" or "It's ready to sign!" but for me it is always a hard decision, when to call a painting... complete. Sometimes, I jump the gun and call it finished too soon (usually when I am bored with the composition...not a good sign) Sometimes, like this one, I can go on forever making changes. I could paint all four seasons in the same painting if no one stopped me. Luckily, I have my art productivity moderator /wife to keep me on track. If she calls it done I know I must be close.
I need to call this one soon because my competition entry deadlines are approaching and I have 3 more paintings to "complete" .
