Playgrounded

Continuing work on Playground.  The end is in sight.  I don’t know if I can do much more with the foreground, but the sky could use a bit more work.

Since it’s hard to capture the nuances of the dark area in a photo, I’m including a detail to help illustrate:
This painting goes against the grain of work I usually do.  Instead of details and clarity, I’m going for soft edges and ambiguity.

It’s been a learning experience, but not sure about the result.  I am intrigued by the playground subject matter.  A playground has great overlapping lines and shapes, and it’s also a metaphor for life.  So there may be more playground paintings in the future.
