What to do?

This painting has been a work in progress for a long time. I really need to either finish it, or start over. I painted it on particle board and I was going to make a folding screen, but the "wood" is way to heavy. I also chipped it when I moved (3 times) and have basically been in a block trying to decide what to do. Here is the painting:

On one hand I need to finish it. I am open to what finishing it could mean.
- It could mean finishing this one and repairing the chip and coming to terms with the weight of it and creating a stand for it.

- It could mean finishing this one (u)and creating another one like it that is lighter in weight and could be either a triptich and hung or a folding screen.

- It could mean getting rid of the heavy one and not finishing it and just making a new one using the old one for a reference, but changing some colors and updating the painting with techniques and skills that I have learned since I made that one.

it is Mercury Retrograde and I am using the energy to "re-" do, review, re-think.... you get the picture.

I am posting this on my other LJ blog because I would like suggestions brain storms or votes, I really can't make up my mind what to do. I love this painting... HELp!!!!!
