This is the skull I have been working on for awhile. Until about 20 minutes ago it was 3/4 of the way done. I had about 20 plus hours in it. While I was working on it, I wasn't completely happy with the colors I chose for the dots. And some of the dots were irregular in shape. But I thought'well, it's ok I guess.' And I kept going. But today I washed the whole thing clean. Because as artists, we shouldn't settle for 'it's ok'. We should always do our best work. It is our responsibility to our talents.
So that is the hard lesson learned, or should I say relearned. Never settle. Always do your best.
