Finishing...

My Mum very kindly (and anonymously) commented on my Projects on the Go... post that

... and you haven't changed..... Just the same as when you were little. Always had plans to put pieces in the local show, but come showtime, nothing was finished..... (someone who knows)

I'm wondering though, if this trait could possibly be inherited? Is it possible that I picked this up from my wonderful Dad - I submit for evidence the unfinished kitchen renovations, the car motor that is in pieces under the house, should I go on?.... (I love you Dad)

Like me, Dad is great at finishing the things he enjoys like this fantastic timber rowboat called "Tucan" (note the pint-sized captain "Tiny")...


...with these great (hand-made) woven seats

Finishing what I start is definitely something I need to work on, and now I have a point to prove I MUST get through that list!!! (You'll see Mum!!! and I WILL have that exhibition that I mentioned to you too!!)

I'm off to get to some work because blogging about GONNA's isn't going to get me there!

my mom and I tease each other about all our unfinished stuff - seems I inherited it from her!

us 'creatives' always have the infamous UFO's
after all Leonardo was famous for it with the Mona Lisa
"after he had lingered over it four years, left it unfinished...."[5] He is thought to have continued to work on it for three years after he moved to France and to have finished it shortly before he died in 1519."
