Nebraska Players Completed

I'm calling this piece finished. I may, since it is going to be sitting in my studio until Christmas, take another look and fine tune this or that as we all do when we continue to look at our work! HA. I decided to continue with the loose strokes I began on the jersey's and it works.
I kept some of the same colors in the dark area up top so Damon can hang it below the Memorial Stadium if he so chooses. The two seem to fit together fine. Nebraska Players Completed!So, we got another 12-15" of snow last night! Sigh...Last year at this time we'd only gotten 1". This year so far we are up to 60"...Did I sigh yet? Sigh!! The good news is I didn't have to shovel...in fact..

I was able to walk out on our deck in my Reebocks..



And, other good news is my Christmas Cactus is blooming again...pretty! Wanted to share! I call it my alien flower...I can't ever paint it properly as it always looks like an alien...duh...thus the name.

I think the Nebraska players have exactly the right amount of roughness for a football team -- this painting came together beautifully.

But shouldn't 61 be wearing his own helmet?

Both paintings for your SIL are fabulous, Saundra, truly. I cannot think of a better Christmas gift for this year. The cactus too is stunning. The good thing about painting flowers is that no two are ever alike so there is alot of wiggle room!

Carol, Believe it or not I thought of you when I posted this...I have thought about painting it, but like I said the blooms look like aliens...ha.

Thank you Autumn Leaves, I truly hope the loves them. They, as you know, were labors of love! You all have said so many things about the cactus I may just have to approach them again! :)

The football players are great. Look like they are chomping at the bit to get onto the field. You captured their anticipation. You should definitely paint the Christmas cactus. I know you will do it justice.
PS Thanks for the comments on my sky painting.

Saundra, Very nice painting. I'm from SW Iowa (very near NE) and know how important sports are there. I actually remember the "Big Red Machine" era, they even created a chewing gum to celebrate the team. Your works are wonderful and I look forward to seeing more.

What a treasure to receive a painting like this! I especially like the green grass playing against the shapes of the players along with the punch of that strong dark on the top. Excellently painited!
