Ivan and the Red Rod

Pastel on paper - 9" X 11" $100

This piece was inspired by a picture I saw on Facebook, taken by a friend of a friend. As I was flipping through the photo memories of her recent camping trip at Coyote Creek, I was captivated by two pictures of her son Ivan in this tall grass with this red fishing rod. I especially love the composition of this one, and felt compelled to paint it. I was still drinking my morning coffee, so I took out my pastel pencils and spent the next couple of hours transported somewhere between my kitchen and this tall grass.

Thanks to Rhonda and Ivan for the inspiration, and the great reference photo.
