A barometer of your artistic progress?

This is what I propose:

(1.) hang your best work on "the wall" for a year. 

(2.) Look at it for a whole freaking year.

(3.) A year later... (don't worry, it'll just take a few hundred beers and a couple arguments and about 1000 to 2000 hours of doing work that you don't want to).... look at that crap on your walls again and consider if you like it as much as when you did when you first put it up there:

(4.) if the answer is: NO!: then great success! You win! You've changed! You've (read: I have) continued along your path of discovery and evolution.

(5.) if the answer is YES: then... either make more work, make different work, make better work, pull your head out of whatever grandiose holy orifice you believe it is stuck in, get a second opinion, just take it down and look at the painted walls that it was hideously blocking for some appreciating of what a "real art" is, read something, eat better foods?, drink more beer, or anything else- just don't keep fooling yourself that that is where the ultimate manifestation of your craft lies- because we can do better!

(6.) have a nice day.
