The Painter's Key: Hyper-Perfectionism

Robert Genn's "The Painter's Keys" has a great "letter" about hyper-perfectionism, a disease I am afraid I may suffer from periodically. Ok.....often.

Great meeting with Kathleen. What a blessing to connect with another artist and find that we often wrestle with the same issues and have such similar desires for our work.

I loved this particular issue, too.
lol--if you do suffer from it, it at least leads to an extraordinary result (from seeing what you post). mine too often get tortured and go back to the pile in the corner.

Interesting article.

I'm not a hyper-perfectionist but I'm definitely a perfectionist.

A good trick is once you think you're done with a painting, sign it, and sell it off right away. This way you can't change it anymore because it's gone!
