Complete happiness never seems to occur in the completion of a work of art....yet, the promise of it is felt in the process itself each time a work is started.  It is this great insufficiency that drives me.  You could say that the act of creating becomes more essential than the artwork.  This self indulgent and obsessive behavior acts as the discipline through which I can refine my sensibilites.
