Done or not?

8"x8"

I rarely struggle with whether or not a piece of art is finished. Sometimes I have to restrain myself when I KNOW it is done, but I want to keep adding to it. I think that is the bane of a collagist, always wanting to add more pieces. The collage above feels done at times, but other times it feels trite and over-simplified. I posted it here to see what you think.........

Not done.

Well, I'm not a 'mixed media' artist so it looks great to me! Besides...all work is subjective anyway! So it's all about how you like or don't like it, isn't it!

I like the balance as it is, with the eye being drawn to the writing... I would say it's done..

It's done! Time to develop and give birth to a new creation.

Happy holidays - Katie

Perhaps not done yet, the bit in the front is almost jumping off. I like the effect though, of how all the pieces seem to come towards the viewer. Well my amateur opinion :-)
