"peace" - 20x16

I have wanted to paint this for about a year...........when I was out painting a landscape at Hunting Island, I paused to take some reference photos and these three guys rode past. At the time I saw them, I thought that the front guy was waving at me but when I looked at the photo later I saw that he was giving me the peace sign. I thought it was pretty neat when I discovered that! I have a little more work to do on the right hand side.....the water is done with very thick paint and I couldn't get some of the finishing touches to stick. Bicycles are pretty hard to do convincingly and I already see problem areas but that's for another day when it's dry enough.
