It's looking good.
Can you give some background on the symbolism? Or have you done that already and I am obtuse?

Nah, Not obtuse at all. There were a couple of  theme contests at the chalk walk held during the "3 Rivers Festival" this past summer. One of them was the underground railroad. This was what I came up with for my entry. It was a runaway slave in the middle with a man and woman watching and crying with Sadness for the trial he's enduring, but happiness for the future and what his life (of course representing everyone who endured the same things) could be. Hope that makes sense.

Here's the finished chalk version.

When you're all finished with your painting, you might want to seal it with a light coat of water-based polyurethane.  BTW, that's an awesome pic.

This may not happen, since I have had major surgery on my shoulder.
