Hi, I thought I replied before but I guess it did not post.
I do artwork and writing. It seems to be one huge “batch” that hopefully will get all finished at some point. This last year I have focused on “organizing it all”. It is all digital luckily. And I forced myself to stop start new ones. This has not been an easy process to do. My brain would rather keep starting new creations !
I think I will always have to work in “limited batches” though.
I read that Robert Bateman cannot simply work on one painting from start to finish and keeps a half dozen paintings going that are at different stages (rotating). His would be too agonizingly detailed for me to finish (even in batches).
