Good morning.

I really like the way you've handled the figures in this, but I'm suffering some serious cognitive dissonance from the fact that the background seems incongruous.

The figures are very stylized, and polished, while the background seems just the opposite; rushed, unplanned.

Maybe that's what you intended (and also, the scan might not be doing the piece full justice)--

--and it's just my opinion, but I'd like to see the results of using the same techniques in the background, as you did with the figures.

The figures are great and tell a wonderful story..................LOL some of my earlier pieces occupy prominent places in my relatives closets, I think.:)
