I'm happy with this one except the foreground shade is too piecey. I don't want to mess with this one but will try to think about that next time. I really like the shape of the sky and the sky holes. (which have been hard for me to get right) I also like that the brush strokes look casual.
It looks so quiet but in reality there was all kinds of activity going on all around me: There was a group of kids doing crafts in one of the city's summer programs, boys playing basketball just a few feet away and a relentless grounds person mowing with his ride on mower.
