Drifting....

I wasn't happy with this image so I decided to work into it a little more, I think it works better with the contrast of the sun against the darkening sky..

They watched the clouds slowly drifting across the setting sun.....

You're such an inspiration, Kathy! I love your works, and how you achieve such minute detail even if its a silhouette. How big is this, if you don't mind my asking?

Your work is so soothing Kathy, thank you for sharing your gift with us. I love the way you outlined the boys with a bright outline. These guys remind me of my two grandsons (same spikey hair) great work as usual...wish I could drift away with them.
