Summer Girls

Summer Girls 24x30 avail 
  This piece, "Summer Girls" started as a sketch last summer and finally found its way to a full sized, organized, contributing member of my little painting society. For about half a year it stayed on my wall with a dark foreground shadow that really seemed to make you look past the figures and not let the background read as land receding into the distance.
 So I asked advice from an Artist friend of mine who has been in the trenches with bad paintings and survived, the response lead me to this composition.  You know who you are, Thanks!
 Sometimes the answer to compositional problems is removing, not adding and definitely not adding details! Happy Summer everyone!
