By using the word "done" the painter implies that certain formal,  emotional,  and intellectual criteria have been satisfied to some degree.  Unfortunately this is a messy business,  one that rarely enters into the rational domain, and it is this murkiness that makes the work itself come alive.  Then again the painting may be seen as an excuse for apparently not "saying" anything.  Multiple logics may indeed be part of the experience of "seeing" through this catastrophe.
