Leonardo da Vinci said, "Art is never finished, only abandoned."

For me, one of the most difficult moments is knowing just when to put my pastels down and step away.  One of my features for The Artist Magazine (UK) covered this dilemma but I also enjoy writing on any matters relating to my passion for soft pastels.
