So eventually all good things must come to an end.
And what a dramatic way to go...
The pinata that just kept on giving. If your friend hosts a bonfire, offer to bring some extra kindling. The party really gets started when everyone ceremoniously gathers around a flaming monster head.
On second thought, definitely don't try this at home.
It all seems a little morbid, yes? But don't think that way.
It can be invigorating to destroy an object you worked hard creating. The artistic experience becomes more focused on the construction process than the finished object. Document and destroy.
I had a painting professor who was always on my case for reusing my canvases. During my summer abroad in Italy, we painted a new piece in a different location every day. So I just painted over the previous day's canvas. Every day. I guess he was worried I wouldn't have anything to show at the end of the semester and in a sense, he was right. But thankfully to this day, I fondly remember the act of painting and not the visual garbage I created.
