St. Louis Rams Project

Ooooh, I
need to post more! It's been VERY busy these past few months! Holiday time is always crazy and this year was no exception. In addition to the usual dozens of portraits, I was fortunate to be asked to do a painting for St. Louis Ram's RB Marshall Faulk to be presented to him at his retirement celebration. Limited edition prints were made of this painting in addition to having it shown on national TV! FUN! Above is the painting along with two shots from the ceremony during which the painting showed on TV. LOL. It barely showed, but hey, better than nothing! Well, hope to post more soon. Happy New Year! You can see the whole retirement ceremony at Youtube by clicking this link:

Holy Cow! That is one great painting! Was there another ceremony of some kind that gave you any credit as the artist of the painting? I hope so because this is phenomenal. Congratulations on this big accomplishment and I hope it brings you many more successes!

Thanks, Julie! Doing a five-figure painting is a challenge as you are well aware. Thank you for popping by to peek at the final product!
