I don't see anything wrong with the image compositionally, but you do have a very complex and precisely symmetrical design. I think this is probably just one of those pieces that comes together slowly over time. I wouldn't worry about how long it takes to finish; if you don't have a deadline, just work on it when the mood strikes you. Then when you're finished, you have a title: The Forever Project! :D

She's right

Menolly is right. I've always been told a painting is never really finished. You just find a good place to stop.

This is a nice piece. Maybe you've just found that good place? If not, let it sit and work on it as it comes to you! No pressure! :)

For something spiritual like this.... you will finish it when you are ready to... Don't force it.
Enjoy it
