In Progress Street Scene!

I've done lots of commissions of my Street Scene Series, and I am working on a new one! The one pictured is one that sold a couple years ago and the other picture shows the "parts" or mini paintings I do in preparation. They are not in any order at all, because I will assemble it when I work out the composition, make the board, the frame, etc. But I thought it might be fun to show one of these in progress. Lots of work, but very custom friendly, and seem to be popular!
