It's a double edged thing isnt it- on the one hand, we constantly improve and invent yet we're never happy for long when its done. Personally I think they key is flogging it before you change your mind

they don't call it artistic temperament for nothing - its scary sometimes to look at the cliches and go 'actually, I do that....and that.....and....oh, hell'

Haha! I can relate! I hate everything I produce and I have to stop myself from saying to people 'really? You want to buy this?!'

Maybe thats one of the reasons why its often so difficult to price up work? Especially if you fall out of love with whatever it is you've made...

That's a very good point littlewren. I used to end up slashing my prices and even tried to give my work away to charities! This was until someone said that other people just don't have the same perception as the artist. I'm sometimes amazed at the comments I get from very old works so now I'm just very quiet and say nothing!
