Of course there’s no such thing as perfection in art. As we all know… paintings never really have an ending, they just arrive at an interesting place to stop. Leonardo said, “art is never finished, only abandoned”. But all too often when that point arrives early we talk ourselves into the mindset of “it can’t be that easy”… so we seek to improve, change, develop, experiment, push, reinvent, adapt, challenge. But… what if sometimes those very first marks create a rare and exquisite brushstroke, transport the viewer someplace special … capture the artist’s most raw truth? What if it’s already perfect?
