A football fan ahead of his time.

I guess it would look bad if I suggested the topic that killed off the blog, and then didn't even have the decency to do a football picture myself. So here you go. Come on, people. Football isn't that bad of a topic.

C'mon, I'm girl. . . Guilt trips won't work on me. . . I mean, ones having to do with football.

But, your painting is great, I love your colors. I always love your colors.

This is great. Very funny. I love how the crowd is just dumbfounded. Every person in this one has a great expression.

Beautiful colors Dave. You really captured the mood of this period of time.

Great painting, Dave... as always. I love the concept.

Great idea, the depression must have really gotten to this guy and sent him right off the deep end. Unfortunately, he had many offspring and passed the gene on to our modern crazy football fans.

Hilarious, Dave... I love it. It shows how far football fandom has come. Great colors and all, too.

(Also, I like the topic. I just haven't drawn anything yet, but I will).

Really dig the palette, and how many figures you put in here. Nice paintin', man!

Great vintage style, looks like 50th. And nice expressions.
(By the way: Football is the thing with the roundly ball you only touch with your feet!)

Great job, Dave. I love how you handled the many figures to support the composition. It all worked out great together.

Love it - great painting. I really like the nostalgic feel that you create with your color palette (I think I went to that game...). I love the hand-stitched foam finger. Nice work.
