Another look at my current piece in progress. That dirty pile of pastel sticks, bits and pieces is typical. Sometimes I try to be more neat about it, but I just keep grabbing different colors and that's where they end up. It becomes my 'in use pile'. They're all right there in front of me but I do I have to constantly rummage though the pile to find the one I want. Which is often the one I just got done using and can't find.
