I have a tendency to stop working on a painting three-fourths through it. It just gets to a point when I start thinking that this is not going to be a successful painting. I need to listen to the little voice that was in my head in the beginning saying this is going to be a great painting and just keep painting. Several times I stopped on Vegetable Medley but I finally finished it. I'm happy with it now and just entered it in the Southern Watercolor Society Exhibition. Refer to prior posts to see the progress of this painting. My advice is that if you believe in a painting enough to start it then you should see it through to the finish. Some of my best paintings were ones that I thought just were not good part way through the process and stopped and finally finished!
