Don't Give It All Away

I think you should stop (working on a painting) before you give all the answers away.  Don't explain everything; don't describe everything.  Leave a lot to the imagination.

As my friend, the watercolorist Eva Bender, once remarked (in her infinite wisdom):  "People like to guess."  There should be mystery in every painting.
