While working on a piece of art, how do you know when it’s “done”?

If you follow us on Facebook, then you already know that it’s become almost like a sister site to what we post every day here on the Wooster blog.  On Facebook we’ve been asking a series of questions about art, being an artist, inspiration, etc. The responses that are being posted each day are wonderful. 

Because they made us smile, we thought we’d share with you a sampling of the responses that have been posted today to our question:

While working on a piece of art, how do you know when it’s “done”?

Here’s some of the answers:

Luke: When someone buys it!

John: When your sick of nit-picking at it

Puppet Industries: When the cops catch ya.wink

Nick: You never do, that’s why it’s a piece of art.

James: When your mum calls you down for dinner. (Note from Wooster: Our favorite!)

Jasper: “Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away” - Antoine de Saint Exupery

Frank: When the check clears.

Anita: When you feel satisfaction!

James: Paintings are never finished, only abandoned. - Picasso

Sarah: When you’re afraid you’ll destroy it if you do anything else to it

Nathan: When you feel like there’s more work to be done, but nothing you do to it makes it better than it already is.

Josh: When it starts to piss me off

Will:  When efforts at improving it just screw it up.

Logan: When I ruin it.

Pierre: When i stop looking at it as an actor but as a spectator, no more acting obsession, when i can forget it….

Misha: When its 6 am and i’ve got to be at work at 8

Dan: When somebody loves it

Angel: When you are scared about putting something else in it..

Victoria: 10 years later
