One of many goals I have as an artist is to never cease improving. Whenever I finish a piece I stand back and stare at what I had done, silently rewarding myself (and it, because I feel my work is a body separate from my own) but ultimately I am always judging it, grading its success and wondering how I could improve on the marks I had made in preparation for my next attempt at creation. I feel like there will never be a point where I will stand back, no matter how skilled I grow, and think that there is in no way I can improve or that I shouldn’t continue improving no matter how satisfied I am in my own ability.
