I just started working on a painting and already it’s looking pretty good. The problem with this is that it’s too early for this piece to be anywhere near finished. In order to move forward I’m going to have to push the composition and in effect ruin the piece a bit. It’s always a bit scary to do this, but I know in the end it will make the piece stronger.

Do you ever have this with your work? What do you do when the piece starts to look good before it is truly finished?

In gratitude, Nicholas
