When do you decide whether to give up on a project, to throw it away and not allow it to eat any more of your time? Do you ever get to that point with a project? The "right" answer for Julia was "never"...but that was romance. This is art.
Do we go with our heart, or listen to our head on some things? Jus' ponderin'.
I have a lot of doll projects in mind, and yet there is a shelf full of Works In Progress...in varying degrees of completion, from just a head to all-it-needs is arms and legs and a dress. But not all of them appeal to me. Some of them feel like a chore that, even if completed, will offer very little reward of satisfaction.
In some cases, enough really is enough, and I'm learning (hard lesson!) that to sacrifice time and energy for those particular projects is to take away from future growth as an artist. I'll be honest and ruthless, and once in a while a little sentimental.
So...when is enough enough for you?
Do you ever scrap a project and refuse to allow it more of your time?
