My friend commissioned me to paint a picture of the backyard view at her family's ranch home. She's giving it to her in-laws for a Christmas present. Can't wait to hear what they think!
From the photograph reference...
To the final piece...

My uncle and my son "going for a ride" on the John Deere tractor.
Soft Pastel on Sanded Paper
This has been the most enjoyable piece to date for me.
I'm so grateful to Paige Bridges for her guidance with it. She is an amazingly talented artist!

I love Illustration Friday at www.illustrationfriday.com!
Although I don't always have the opportunity to participate,
I enjoy being inspired by all of the creative entries every week.
This week's topic was my 6-year-old son's favorite!
So I couldn't resist proudly helping him post his amazing creation...
