Arizona Cardinals football painting - "GO CARDINALS"


The "Arizona Cardinals" are having a winning streak now with 8 wins.  Since I live in Arizona, I couldn't resist painting one of my "sports" themed oil paintings with a "cardinal."  The "Arizona Cardinals" will be playing another game on Sunday Nov. 16th against the Detroit Lions.  

With the "Super Bowl" being played in "Arizona" this year, it would be exciting to have the "Arizona Cardinals" play in their home state.  This oil painting will be framed and available at the "Celebration of Fine Art" in Scottsdale, Arizona.  So if you are in town for the big game, or just to see the wonderful art in can stop by the "Celebration of Fine Art" to see or purchase this oil painting called "Go Cardinals."  

For more information about the "Celebration of Fine Art" see the link at the end of this post.  The show opens on January 17th and is open every day through the end of March.

Super Bowl Sunday is the day on which the annual championship game of the National Football League (NFL) is played. NFL is the highest level of professional American football in United States. The game was created as a result of agreement between NFL and American Football League (AFL). The two were merged in 1970. Super Bowl Sunday is considered national holiday by most fans. It is the second-largest day for food consumption in the U.S. after Thanksgiving Day. The Super Bowl is also one of the most watched American broadcasts attracting more than a hundred million viewers.

Here is a photo of my oil painting in progress:

This painting is framed in a custom wood Italian made frame and is available for purchase.  I will also be offering it in a "limited edition" of prints.  Please contact me for pricing and availability.

Hummingbird Fun

Here is a small oil painting of a "hummingbird" I just finished.   It is on a small canvas size 9x3".  I kept this "hummingbird" painting simple with a plain background.  I was outside in the early morning photographing a couple of "hummingbirds" in my patio trees.  They are so fun to watch.

I think this picture is a baby "Anna's hummingbird."  He didn't seem to mind me taking his picture but was very curious about me.  He was so much smaller than the other hummingbird nearby, so I wonder if it's the baby?  Usually they chase each other away from the feeder, but these little ones were quite friendly.

This painting features a little "chipping sparrow" sitting on top of a "Titleist" golf hat with a golf ball and "ping" golf tee.
