Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all
The Woody prints have all sold. Bo Schembechler is catching up slowly but surely. I sold three of these 11" x 14" matted prints in one week! Because these coach prints are selling so well I have decided to do an entire series of coaches. Tom Landry from the Dallas Cowboys and Vince Lombardi from when he was with the Green Bay Packers are the next two in the series. Then I'll go back to college football: probably Joe Paterno from Penn State is next. These are fun paintings to do- the backgrounds are totally open and even the guys expressions are open to interpretation. I always have to do a bit of research on the coach first because I need to know how he should be portrayed. People always have lots of suggestions about who I should paint next; it seems America is passionate about sports.
