a load off

 I included two photos so that you could see how large this piece is.  It is painted on a 2' x 4' canvas.  Think I am mostly finished.  May tweak it here and there.
I took the reference photo in St Andrews, Scotland.  Home to the third oldest University in the English speaking world. Also where golf got its start.
I was drawn to the group sitting on a wall taking a lunch break.  When I looked at the photo I decided it would be interesting to crop out their upper bodies.
I still have one spot open in my January workshop.  Please e mail with interest or to hear more about it.  If you know you can not make it in January but have an interest, go ahead and let me know.  I will also create a wait list for this one.
