Chris in the Orchard- "Shadow" Illustration Friday piece #3

This piece is from a Scholastic book "I Am an Apple". When I present my work at school and library talks, I always tell the kids how much I enjoy using Silhouettes. I explain how they are simple shadowy shapes that tell a story. That's why I've chosen this piece for "Shadow".
I had a couple of friends that picked apples for a part time job one summer. "Chris in the orchard" was the inspiration for this piece.
I have listed this piece in my Etsy Shop with more information.
