Good Morning - Sample Cutting

This is a sample cutting, measuring 8x10" using the same color gradations as Skyline Yellow.  The black border of most previous cuttings works well to make the colors appear more vibrant, but in this case I eliminated it because I think the subject matter demanded a more ethereal effect.
To the right is the off-axis illustrating the individual layers.  The original photograph is from a stock photography website.

Buttermilk In May

In order to overcome the inherent complexity of the original image, I had to do this cutting with a higher level of abstraction than I would have liked.  I think the piece is successful but I'm not sure it's something I want to repeat. 
To the left is the off-axis, illustrating the thickness of the six individual layers.
