I had let this painting sit for months, not sure how to do resolve it. Perhaps it's harder to be objective when the subject matter is people. The image I used to paint from was an old photograph that was in a huge stack that I inherited. I wish I knew what the story was here...my mother and her aunt sitting on a suitcase beside the road in the West Texas expanse of land and sky. 11" by 14" acrylic mixed media on wood panel.

Thank you Vicki! So glad you like it. It's a little different direction and I hope to do more of this type.
