Start of a new painting

Today I'm working on a rough sketch of a painting I'd like to start.  My mother-in-law had a yard sale that she had because she was moving from her home that she lived in for a very long time.  I was struck that her friends who she has had for a very long time were there, and it reminded me of the treasures found in friendship and not in the stuff we collect over the years.  I want that to be portrayed in this piece and I'm hoping I can do it with that feeling in a larger size.  This is only about 7 x 9 and I like how it came out with a spontaneous feel  mostly because I painted it without drawing too much.  Hopefully I can maintain the's so hard to do.
