Judge Not (or Why is Editing Always So Painful?)

Judge in Ink 

We all have that inner critic. The one who tells us that it won't work out, that those colors don't go together, that nobody's going to think your work is good.

In truth we all need to have a judge in our lives and in our artwork. Otherwise how would you know when a piece of art is done. The judge knows.

The trick is to keep him at times, at arms length. Otherwise we'd never have the strength to go out and try making anything if all we did was listen to the judge.

The Judge - If your stomach hurts when you look at your artwork, it's not ready yet, and your dinner probably wasn't fully cook either.
