Created this oil painting at the request of my son, Cole. “Dad, you should do a soccer painting.” I told him, “one condition – we do this together.” That’s why there’s a portrait of him by my signature. And, Cole named the painting. Painting includes all of Cole’s favorite players. And, the players had to have the right, most-representative jerseys on. Once the painting was finished, we had a number of giclees made – gave the prints to Cole’s best friends as high school graduation gifts. Names of his Blue Devil teammates and coaches are in the painting. I have loved watching Cole’s love of the game develop. And, I’ve become a fan as well. The game has been a wonderful gift that has helped me get closer to my son – enjoyed commemorating that experience in this painting.
