Sports Art painting of Mariano Rivera is 5 feet by 6 feet acrylic on unstretched canvas. I painted him looking a bit older than he actually is. Think of it as kind of like a painting where the image gets older but the actual person stays eternally young. (Somewhat like Dorian Gray without the hedonism.
