4170: Never Good Enough Day 8

The title of this painting is Never Good Enough. I like the dichotomy of this statement in my own personal life. Right now I’m holding myself to a very high standard where almost everything is never good enough. Everything is a stepping stone to something better. Every painting is a learning experience to get onto the next one so I can make it better. Which intern makes everything I do, never good enough. But at the same time, it’s a way to progress with high standards. 

Maybe a better way of saying it is never finished or always striving but with the gesture of this figure it’s almost a reminder of the trap not to fall into. Yes hold yourself to high standards Chris, but don’t look at the glass as half full don’t feel like you will never be good enough. Don’t despair.
