Well, when I start working on something, depending on my mood/state of mind and if I've had sleep that day, I usually feel pretty good about it. If I do, It usually starts feeling fucked up towards the end of a painting, but not always. Sometimes, when I haven't had a lot of sleep, as I'm painting, I think its my best work, only to wake up the next morning and either nitpick every little detail thinking its fucked up, or end up storing it on my computer, never to be seen again.

I almost always finish my paintings, something I hadn't been doing for the longest time, which is totally the wrong thing to do. I look at it like this, it could be the worst thing you've ever made, but that's the catch, If you think it is, more than likely there are certain things you see that are wrong or you don't like, so you think of ways you could have done it better. That's the only way that we can learn from our mistakes, you cant get better at something you haven't truly tried your best at it before.
