Widow Maker

As I child, my brother and I were obsessed with sports highlight reels. We were not lucky enough to have ESPN, so we would watch the local news every night, anticipating the 4 minutes of sporting news. On Sunday night we were on cloud nine because, they would show a bloopers reel of all the mishaps in the sporting world that week. These two paintings were born out of those sports highlights.

I have to admire someone who is willing to risk, for without risk, there is no reward.
