“Finishing a thing is way more important than having something perfect but not finished. Part of becoming an amazing artist is having the ability to finish something.” ~ Jake Parker

Last night I whipped up this little stippling of some sparrows. It really didn’t turn out how I had imagined it and I realized it wouldn’t halfway through. My first inclination was to abandon it and move on to something else or at least just start over but I thought about what Parker said “Finishing is way more important.” As someone who is a bit of a perfectionist, it pains me to create something that’s less than what I had hoped for, so continuing on was a bit frustrating. I’m not pleased with the outcome but at least I finished it.
