It's generally intuition that tells you that a particular work is done,  especially when it comes to abstraction.  From my vantage point anything that is easily "read" should be changed,  painted over,  or tossed away,  an artifact of poor decision-making.  This painting offers the artist's touch as both metaphor and  history, and  is especially evident as brushed surfaces give way to both sanded excavations and drawn areas,  an embrace of both randomness and active options/preferences. The above is acrylic paint and medium,  modeling paste,  and pencil on wood.
