Football Art Painting Philadelphia Eagles NFC Championship Torry Smith

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. Teachers also receive supplies they need to start the school year”  What a great gift to the community from the Torrey Smith Family Fund.  All my best to you, Torry.

Tom Brady New England Patriots Painting

Tom Brady Painting 

This painting of Tom Brady I did a couple of years ago but it seems current given the fact that he will be in another Super Bowl this year – In fact this will be his eighth trip to the Super Bowl - the most for any quarterback in history, winning four titles.  Brady has started fifteen seasons with the Patriots  and drafted by the in the sixth round of the 2000 NFL Draft.  Now, that late pick in the draft certainly has paid off. 

Food for NFL Football 

It was great watching the Championship game between the New England Patriots and the Pittsburgh Stealers.    My wife was very kind and fixed me some very special treats while watching the NFL’s AFC Championship Game.  Yes, the photo shows Roasted Brussels sprouts and Delicata squash.
 She spiced it up with some Parmesan cheese. Yummy, yummy.  As you can imagine I just wolfed that delicious plate of vegetables right on down.  I can’t wait to see what super special treat she rustles up for me on Super Bowl Sunday - maybe a nice big bowl of barbequed broccoli or cauliflower.  Isn’t your mouth just watering?  - perfect tailgating food for those special winter afternoons.  I’m surprised she didn’t offer me a glass of vinegar water to wash it down with.  I shouldn’t tease her about the treats.  It was very thoughtful – well she could have thought about it and have come up with something better – like steak and potatoes.
