When is it done?

“Art is never finished, only abandoned.”
― Leonardo da Vinci

One of the downsides to creating a lot of artwork in a short period of time is the question of when is it done.  Once it is off the board it usually a start. The next question is sorting out those pieces I am going to offer for sale. Some paintings I look at and know that as they are, I am not going to offer them for sale. Some go in the pile to be prepared for sale, and some become something else. For those that I look at on the second view and decide not for sale, not for a card or gift, t becomes a question of what to do with them. Is it a matter of needing more work or should I paste them into my how I have grown book.  do they need more. The prepare for sale pile…. That is my big to do, so very many parts to that. Mounting and or framing. Photographing, Adding to the product data base. Add to website and/or list.  The painting and creating is the more fun part of it. When do you consider your artwork done?
