Above is another of the encaustics I "finished" at the encaustic workshop I took (you can read more about the workshop here). At the end of the day we had a critique session and it received favorable reviews. But I have the same issue with it as with other abstract work:
How do you know when it's done?
Now, with the piece below, I "know" it's not done - something in me is screaming that it needs some words added in somewhere (details are not being provided however- hehe).IS NOT done but I don't always hear anything, feel anything, "know" anything when another piece IS done. Especially in pieces that start out as experiments I often just look & wonder. Ugh!
How do you know when a piece is finished?
Is it a feeling of satisfaction?
And if you don't get that feeling, do you keep going or put it aside for another day?
