From the Collection of Aubrey, Daniel, Weston and Colton Ruff, Logan, Kansas

Every now and again a painting comes along that is pure fun to do. Aubrey Ruff asked if I could paint an image symbolizing her husband and two boys and not portraits. She wanted Kansas with a subtle hunting theme mixed in with a landscape. I purposefully kept the main elements small in order to have the viewer come closer to the painting.

Aubrey emailed a number of pictures and I took some and incorporated them in the painting. Some were hers and a couple were mine. I really enjoyed the laid back look of the large and open northwest Kansas.
