Grazing becomes more scarce and the oxen tire easily. The load will have to be lightened or you'll never make it to your destination. The decision is made to unload the piano along with many of your precious possessions. One last song is played before heading up the trail. The wagon slowly makes it up the hill. Your eyes are fixed forward - looking back would be too painful.
Composition 2: Think I like this composition better. The piano is more of a focal point. Now, I have to let it dry completely before continuing.
Composition 1: Well - it's a start. Have the rough sketch and under painting nearly finished. I'm noticing that there is a bit too much symmetry of the objects on either side of the trail. Will have to "fix" that before moving any further.
Any comments or suggestions are very much appreciated!!!!
