  Here is a football (USA soccer) image painted of a player running down the field.  I am looking forward to getting some good photograph to use as reference for some upcoming paintings this summer.  The painting is 14" by 20" on cardboard covered in vintage newsprint of soccer information.  The soccer art with the frame makes the overall dimensions 16" x 20"   acrylic and ink on the newsprint.
