Though this video doesn't offer concrete answers, it will get you thinking about the bigger picture and how to stay vigilant about your goals.

Have you ever worked on a painting for so long that you fooled yourself into thinking it was good? It's a common affliction for artists, and hopefully this video will allow you to learn from my mistakes. Many of the videos on this site explain technique or concepts -- this video it different: it's a painting story. A story that ends with me wasting the better part of a day.
