Philadelphia Eagles Football Art
During the playoffs I have created football art of plays from the teams where some of my family live. This football painting is of the team Philadelphia Eagles in the city where one of my niece’s lives. The painting is of Torry Smith of the Philadelphia Eagles during the NFC Championship game against the Minnesota Vikings played at Lincoln Financial Field. Torry in the third quarter, received a 41 yard pass from quarterback Nick Foles. Smith caught the ball in front of Harrison Smith of the Minnesota Vikings and beat him to the end zone. Torry had a decent game with 5 catches for 69 yard, but what made it special was this touchdown catch.
Torrey Smith Family Fund
I didn’t know much about Torry Smith before doing the painting. Mot of the time I just read basic statistics and a little history about the players – just to keep informed. What I discovered about Torry Smith was his foundation - The Torrey Smith Family Fund. It is a…”nonprofit that aims to provide youth with the tools they need to identify, unleash and reach their full potential.” Here is a website giving information about the foundation. TorreySmith.org and information on his work in the community. It sounds like a great organization. What I liked in particular was a couple of things they did. To quote from his web page, …..”Torrey’s Back to School Program” is held each August with the purpose of ensuring that low-income elementary and middle school students have the basic items needed to begin the school year. Teachers also receive supplies they need to start the school year “Torrey’s Back to School Program” is held each August with the purpose of ensuring that low-income elementary and middle school students have the basic items needed to begin the school year.
