EDM #112 Fresh

For me, there is nothing fresher than cut grass - Granted it is late March and I am longing for spring - but the EDM challenge "fresh" conjured up laundry blowing in the breeze (remember sleeping on fresh sheets?) or the smell of geraniums or fresh baked bread or GRASS. I searched for laundry blowing to sketch and found none, so this is it - Luckily I have no allergies!

Wow, you did a really great job with this subject. I can feel the motion of the mower and the grass clippings flying all around. I can smell the grass, too, but that could be because everyone is cutting their's around here. :-)

What a great idea! Freshly cut grass. You've done a lovely job with this, especially creating the illusion of fragments of grass flying over the cutters with the white space you've left.

Wow, this is so perfect for 'fresh' that I can almost smell the grass or the sheets. Love to crawl in bed with sheets from outside drying.
