Should you revise your past work?

There’s Da Vinci’s saying that art is never finished, only abandoned.

There are some cases where that’s true, but for the most part it is best to have a finished product to hold up as your flagship piece. Sometimes you work on something, and wonder to yourself “Is this good enough?” Maybe it needs more finishing touches, or maybe it just isn’t what you want out of your work anymore?
