I was on the home stretch of my morning walk when I saw my neighbors chatting in one of their yards, they were in deep shadow with some back lighting that formed halos around their heads. I knew right away that this had to be painted, so I grabbed my camera headed out to get a photo to work from. I had to reassure them that I was taking a photo for the sake of art and that they should just go on talking and not look at the camera.

Mark at Bam Bam Graphix in Hopkins, Minnesota did a great job of scanning this difficult piece. There are a few highlights showing from reflections off the ridges in the dark areas, but I’m really impressed with Mark’s work and would recommend him highly.
