It was the 2012 Fantasy Football season. I was desperate for some wide receiver production and took a gamble on a Jaguars wide receiver who showed some flashes. That player was Cecil Shorts. He had a great 2012 season and I enjoyed watching him play. Then I started following him on Twitter and learned about his high moral character: how many NFL players spend their Saturday evenings at church? He was an easy player to respect. I tweeted Shorts and asked if he would be willing to sign a painting next time he was in town to play the Colts if I painted it. He tweeted back and said he would be happy to, then asked if I would do a painting for him too. We were supposed to meet downtown in Week 17 of the 2013 season but Cecil had surgery a week before that and couldn't make the trip. The plan was for me to paint 2 painting of him: one for me to keep and one for him to have in exchange for a signed pair of game-used cleats and gloves. The meeting was postponed until November 22, 2014,, but this was the painting that he got to keep. The Jaguar on the helmet was a pain in the butt to get right, but I think I got it.

 

This original piece is 24x30" and is hanging in Cecil's sports room, but you can own a print of it as well.

 

This painting took me 36 hours to complete.


Available in 16x20" glossy print or canvas. All prints come artist-signed with the ink color of your choice. Canvases are ready to hang and stretched on thick 1.5 inch wooden frames.
