I am sure I am not the only person who has a couple of art pieces that are not finished, why do you think this happens and do you ever go back to them to complete them?
Personally, there are days when I am painting I feel my piece is not coming together and so I take a break from it, often frustrated I do not go back to it.

Can anyone else relate?

I am that way with many projects I work on.

I have been working on a photography series, and right in the middle of the project, I either lost sight of where I was going with it or lost interest.

It may be time for me to go back and take another look at it.

maybe you do not layout waht you want to painting?

I think my problem is I get caught up on being everyday busy and I lose track of the goal and passion I had to finish the piece. In turn not going back to it, the good news is my goal of the year is to finish at least 2 painting I have not completed.

I do not have unfinished works per se, I do however have pieces I want to go back and change, don't know if that counts or not?

My new goal is to always have a graphite piece and a color piece in the works at all times, when I am in a stall pattern on one I can go work on the other for a bit to clear the fog.

I think that's interesting because one can be their hardest critic. I can see myself go back and change my piece to perfect it more. However when do you stop? I love the goal you speak off, my goal this summer is to start sketching again :)
