Inspired by the video mantra by Jake Parker (you can watch it below!), I decided to make a hand lettered piece that says "Finished not Perfect" to leave my struggle for perfection aside and just actually POST a finished piece. So often as artists it can be easy to be overly critical of our work - and while it's important to do your best, it's also important to recognize that perfection is unrealistic and will hinder you from true progress as long as you're afraid to make mistakes. SO - this piece is finished. Not perfect.
