    Guess I must have an anal personality because I always finish my paintings unless I can see that one is pure trash and have to throw it out! It is good to set one aside for a while because you get a fresh perspective about it. I’ve been selling my work for many years and each deep winter I pull out my entire stock of paintings and carefully inspect each one. Here is what I look for: Damaged frame; poor color work; not up to my current standards (which means I’ve had it for quite a while ha ha.) When I place some out all together around the room, I can compare them and it makes it easy to see what’s what. Hope this helps!
