    Sorry for the bad pix.
    I will drive out to the farm to get a better photo once the sign is installed.
    This was VERY intimidating for me to paint a combine and a quad tractor.
    The client had inquired with a few sign companies and they wanted to just slap a photo of a combine on his sign...not what he wanted.
    I did the lettering first then gradually geared myself up for the equipment.
    I projected a tracing of the machines onto the sign then filled in the blanks from looking at photos.
    The guy was well pleased.
    This is all Ronan (except for the tan) on Alumalite.
    Love.....Jill
    L-R the proposed sign, then the sign in progressed and finally all done.

    Thanks!
    It's a 4'x8'.
    Big enough to paint on the dining room table and I needed it finished before Thanksgiving.
    :)

    Looks Great! Ronan Paints are really great..

    Just curious why the client wanted to paint a 2-d sign?

    Awesome job! I actually like the second layout a little better, but a great sign nonetheless.
