a special commission

A good friend's mother asked me a year ago to paint her 10 grandchildren. The commission was to be painted on three 24" x 24" size canvases, a triptych.  The idea was clever and creative. She sent me photos of the kids taken at a rodeo in Beaver Creek, Colorado, where they have a home. I liked it because they were posed looking at the rodeo (just the back views of the children.) 

Here are the paintings..... she loved them and I honestly think they turned out great.
The paintings were a surprise to the family and presented Christmas morning.......
My job can be so rewarding.
