This is Champ. Champ’s mom commissioned this painting for his dad for Christmas. And while Champ isn’t with us any longer so many people knew him as he went to work with them everyday. Several times while I was working on the commission at The Studio people came in and said, “Hey, is that Champ?” He was famous.
The family is into Nascar so we wanted to get the checkered flag motif in the painting too. I forgot to take a photo of the painting before he was picked up so they sent this one to me yesterday to share. I was so glad to hear that everyone loved it.
