The Peyton Manning Painting

As a Graduate Student you are pushed to try new things and expand who you are as an artist. When I was a young child one of my favorite things to do was watch football with my Father and draw the heros we witnessed on tv. I thought it might be fun to try my hand with the subjects that inspired me so many years ago. This painting was constructed by various images found online.

I saw Peyton Manning play once in Denver(ironic seeing as that is now his new team), I sat through the game with my father and brothers as it snowed about 6 inches on us. The Colts won the game in overtime and we were all impressed at how Manning orchestrated a game winning drive with all that snow.
