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.
