Jeremy Hill 20x30" "Stay Turnt" Painting Print

$35.00


I grew up in Cincinnati and was raised as a Bengals fan. To this day, I still root on the black and orange and am loyal to my team. Jeremy Hill's rookie year was sensational (1,124 yards, 9 TDs) and his running style is a combination of speed and power, so I wanted to choose a pose that demonstrated both motion and strength and felt that this stiff-arm pose was the way to go. The tattoos would prove to be challenging but I didn't want to omit them. The Colts player is intentionally left fairly abstract with very little detailing. Wanting to do something different with the background and to mute the yellow backround, I went with a new technique for me that I had not tried before: the paint splatter technique. I love the way it turned out.


This painting took 38 hours to complete and the autographed original piece hangs in my studio.


Available in 12x18" or 20x30" poster print or 20x30" 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.
