I like the soft feathery texture of this piece. It makes the graffito look delicate, especially with the foliage in the foreground. Really lovely, Mick!

In the original photograph, the tag is quite harsh and was apparently scrawled quickly in plain, white chalk. So, I appreciate these comments and am pleased that you enjoyed it.

Despite it's ability to annoy, your capturing this little slice of life is beautiful :) Happy Holidays Mick!

I like these colors, they're soft, smooth and tender.

Such nice pastel colors, a real "watercolor" effect here, nice!

This treatment seemed to be what was called for. As I mentioned in my reply to Carla, above, the original didn't lend itself to a lot of what I might otherwise have done. Apparently, that's a good thing! :)
