I came across this cool manifesto of "done" while blog surfing this afternoon. Point five states: "Banish procrastination. If you wait more than a week to get an idea done, abandon it." I'm visualizing all of the unfinished collages I have banished to my Archive of Indecision and wonder if that amounts to abandonment.
I can thoroughly embrace point six: "The point of being done is not to finish but to get other things done." From an artistic standpoint, to be finished is frightening. To me it means that I am totally out of ideas. But the idea of finishing one thing to get other things done implies a continuum of new things to do.
Point eight which states, "Laugh at perfection. It's boring and keeps you from being done," is probably the key to getting art finished. Otherwise I might keep on playing it safe and stop before I'm done to avoid missing perfection!
