This is a small scene from a photo I took at Eugene's Saturday Market. I am including the reference below. We had a lovely time camping, and now I am off for another vacation (I know, very indulgent of me!) to visit a friend in San Francisco for the weekend.

You are a master of simplification! I just keep looking at the brush strokes on that yellow sweatshirt and marveling!

OK, I love how you edited out the background, but didn't make it all one color, I love the little yellow belly on the 'buddy'!
