    Moving West - Chapter 5

    " Sleep on, Mr. Guard, enjoy the fine shade from your tree.... it won't be long before one day, you will wake up from one of your naps, and find me gone. Then, I'm thinking, you will be in need of a new job. "
    Sean worked with sweat on his brow, and a smile in his heart, as his plan seemed to be on track. It has been six weeks since he had been sent here. During that time, Sean has demonstrated an attitude of complete submission, and total acceptable of his situation. He found a couple of workers that loved to gossip, and “confided” in them that he had learned his lesson, and intended to simply work hard, and hope to be a free man next year.
    Just one more step in trying to comvince Rupert and his guards that Sean was a broken man, and not an escape risk.
    Through barter, or the generosity of others, Sean has quietly obtained a few small but important items that will be of great value when he makes his escape. A torn but patchable rain slicker from the widow Taggart, an old but serviceable hunting knife from a passing peddler, an abandoned backpack found in the hayloft of the barn, along with other items that were carefully hidden away for the day they would be needed. Sean has taken care to not take more than one item from any one person, and to keep his plans totally to himself, in order to avoid any talk that might create suspicion in the minds of his guards.
    Sean knows his move must be made soon. He will have a long distance to travel, and with Autumn approaching, Sean will need all the time possible to find a place to sit out the coming winter.

    Coming from the cotton fields of the flatlands of Arkansas, that "distance" is burned into my brain...

    Thanks!

    I liked to use the brush and oil with the auto clean off, for the dirt. Gives more of a natural color to the ground, I think.

    Thanks for checking in on Sean's progress..

    The story goes furtherly goes on fluently and in a quite credible way as a rich caption to the simple and effective illustration. Every chapter provided some suspance and anticipation on what next. Very good!

    Caesar - It's an interesting challenge, to try and make things a bit different, both in the painting and the story, in each chapter, to keep it fresh. Thanks for following the story.

    Oriane - Thank you for your interest and kind comments. I appreciate it.

    Amanda - Your kind words are so dearly appreciated.
    Thank you my dear friend.
