Yes, it took more than a while to get around to finishing it Strange really, it's the only piece I've ever had this experience with, at one stage I found myself really resenting it sitting there on my drawing board. Now it's done I kind of miss having it there to do
I think it is supposed to be Da Vinci who said a work of art is never finished, only abandoned. The unfinished version was really great, and maybe you were afraid of not equaling what you had already done... and then eventually it became more important to get it off the agenda?? Anyway, no worries... the finished product is a beauty. Nice to see it completed... now on to new projects!
