Trash Day

9' x 12"
oil on canvas board

'Trash Day' is finished and dry.  After all the choices I found in Photoshop I ended up painting a piece of the photograph pretty much the way it was minus the trash barrel.  The dramatic tree shadow will have to wait for a square canvas.  I am pleased with the outcome.  The boy seems somewhat burdened by his load of trash but cozy in the sun with the tree pushing him forward into the net of shadows.
