  • wolf pair and old farmall tractor...painted

    These are two pictures I painted recently as birthday presents.
    The tractor goes to my uncle in PA who was actually run over by a tractor like the one I painted. It threw him after the governor broke going down a hill and he landed in front of the left tire and the tractor ran over his head. The only thing that saved him (by the grace of God) was the fact that it had snowed and the ground was about 12 inch deep mud. He got up and walked out to his brother's place and was taken to the hospital. Tough ol' bugger. So, our standing joke is...not even a tractor can take Uncle Reuben out. He'll be 63 in April.
    The wolf pair is for my son, who loves wolves and will appreciate the symbolism of this picture...protecting those we love. His birthday is Feb. 11th.
    Thanks for looking. Any comments you may want to make will be welcome.

    Well done on the pair of them. I remember driving an ol tractor like that. The narrow wheels always scared me as it was easy to turn on it's side.

        Thanks, Mike. I know what you mean about those ol' tractors. They could be tricky.

        Ron, the technique I use makes it easy. Thanks for the encouragement.

            Ron, I posted a how-to on this technique in the WIP section because there were a few who had expressed interest in hand-painting images for puzzles, etc.

            Here is the link (I hope)...if it doesn't work, PM me.

                Thanks Rolf. It isn't so much talent as it is color coordination. I love colors and I love nature. I just put the two together and things happen.

                            Hi Bubba, Beautiful Work!!! I am lucky if I can paint something one color and get to turn out right. I love your painting but hate that type of tractor front end. I have been told of an uncle that was not so lucky with one of those tractors but that was years before my time and could have had some operator error involved. But the picture of the wolves you can hang that on my wall anytime. That is wonderful and thanks for sharing your many talents. Steve

                              Thanks Frieke.

                              Steve, honestly, I can't emphasize enough how easy it is to do pictures like this using the technique I use. Maybe nothing this intricate at first, but certainly less detailed images are possible. Why not take a look at my "how-to." It can't hurt to look. It could open the door to so many new experiences. Having said that, I realize there is no hobby that can be mastered by everyone but at least I've given a lot of them a try.
