Remote

Back in the era of the free-ranging child a kid could build a rickety platform 40 ft. up in some old tree miles away from the parental homestead and that was just fine. Parents told their progeny to go play and then they didn't mess with them. Children were free to roam and explore nature and have adventures.

Love it. I had many childhood days out in the fields or climbing on a tree. Good take on "Remote".

I can relate to this one. Well done!

My too! LOVED roaming in the fields and woods behind our home growing up! AND I have made a fort or two very high in the tree tops!
This is a skillfully crafted illustration worthy of more than a "Awesome job!"
