Gauguin on Overworking Your Art


"Do not finish your work too much. An impression is not sufficiently durable for it first freshness to survive a belated search for infinite detail: in this way you let the lava grow cool and turn boiling blood into a stone. Though it may (look like) a ruby, fling it far from you" Gauguin 1870's Tahiti. (self portrait below 1898)
