A Family Farm Tractor

My dad asked me to create a painting for him last year, which I delivered this past summer while on a 5-week roadtrip. In this painting, my dad is driving the old Ford tractor they use for cutting/bailing/moving hay, with my niece Kelsey (the inspiration for the twirling series) riding on the back. It was really fun painting that scene, as it both brought back memories of my own adventures riding on and driving the tractor and gave me a glimpse of life for my dad as a grandpa. The picture doesn't quite do it justice, but since it is now hanging in Missouri, this will have to do.
