Studio 8.01.12: trust

In progress on the right.

A currently untitled piece. I'm usually reticent to trust my feelings about a piece just after I choose to stop working on it, but sometimes you have to live in that moment and try to trust the feeling especially if it's a positive response. My default is to question my early positive responses and let things settle in for a while.

 When I took the brush away from this piece for the last time yesterday (and stopped myself from doing anything more on it), I was quite happy with it. I'm sure that I'll look at it in more depth the next time that I'm in the studio, but for now, it still strikes a positive chord with me.

This is basically the way I determine whether a painting is, for lack of a better term, complete.
