This is such a great description of your process, and something we all go through. I think we start to polarize so intensely on the work, that we really do start to become blind to it. I turn my paintings upside down when I start a dissatisfied inner dialogue academic writing , and confuse my brain into thinking it's seeing something completely different. It works most of the time !
