This one is almost there. I am going to position it in the hall so I have to look at it as I come around the corner and listen to my inner judge. Something is bugging me

The inner judge
This is my most recent finished product ...dare I say done? I have come to realize that I am not often done when I think I am. The paint dries, I catch a glimpse from the corner of my eye from a different angle and there's a feeling of unsettledness that strikes at my gut. I try to listen to my FIRST response with a fresh eye...What part of the painting is bothering me? Is it balanced? what would FEEL better? When I can walk past it with a smile on my face I think I am done. If it nags me or puts me in a grumpy mood I know I have to revisit something and usually the FIRST thought that comes to my mind is the area of investigation.
