Rejects, Selects, Edits…

Knowing where to start is hard. Knowing where to stop is harder still. Sometimes peer review helps, sometimes it does not. I often stop when I am too weary to continue. This usually happens very late at night or very early in the morning depending on your definition of the dividing line between night and day.

It’s often good to walk away, rest the eyes and clear the mind. The solution sometimes becomes simple or simpler… maybe. The trick is in being able to pick up again where you left off or being able to pick it up again at all. I’m grateful for the critiques and helpful input that went into these images. I don’t always follow the sage advice of others but I do consider it and it often helps me make up my mind. Sometimes it helps to define or refine my original thought process. At some point you have to put the work out as “finished.” Sometimes the finished products are a result of time running out or new projects or thoughts pushing them out of the way. Sometimes finished is a function of reaching the limit of your current skill set. Hopefully with time and practice comes the next limit and the next.
