  1. Place it in a cleared sealed sheet protector. To protect the artwork.

  2. I take a good quality photo for archival and try not to think about making 'improvements'

  3. I step back and take a look at it, then let everyone that Ive been hiding it from finally see the finished piece. Feels good.

  4. I usually find a place in my house to hang it. My technical drawing abilities far exceed those of my social, self-soliciting inclinations.

  5. Spray it with Prismacolor fixative.

  6. I will hang it or prop it up, if it is still on the drawing board, in an area of the house where I walk by it several times. I always try to take a fresh look at it every time I pass it. Then I will spray it with fixative.

    After I sign my art work, I prop it up and step back to admire it again ! I am thinking....am I finished?

  10. Leave it in the studio in full sight for a few days to make sure it's "really" finished until I get the "yes, it's done" feeling.

  11. I take a photograph and post it on my blog, facebook, and twitter. I can't wait to share it! Although if it's been a long day, I may stop for a glass of wine before I take said photograph ;-)

  12. First I admire it slowly throughout the piece and feeling satisfied of what I've done. Then, I spray it with fixative just to make sure that I've tried my best to protect my art.

  14. I make adjustments to the piece still 90% of the time after signing it. I've always found that I put another hour or two of finishing tiny bits of my painting or drawing after I think I'm finished with it. Then the pieces always seem to be complete thereafter.

  15. I generally walk away from it for about a week and then go back and decide how to frame it. It also gives me a chance to see a "fresh" look on what I may have thought "was finished". Up until the time it is framed, I check

  16. Photograph it, display it on the art wall or in a sleeve. After I see the photograph I'll probably make changes or play with the design in Photoshop creating new digital art.
