"Failing is part of being a genius. Every picture is incomplete, else there would not be a reason to paint the next. Every picture and every sculpture has a flaw. You just have to make sure that it is a first class failure and not some low key one. Art is made comprehsensible through flaw and failure, the picture's issue has to absorb the observer. The observer is essential for art, without the audience there would not be art.
