Painting - Oil On Canvas
"Fans, for the past two weeks you have been reading about the bad break I got. Yet today I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth...." Lou Gehrig was one of the greatest ballplayers of all time. Nicknamed the
Iron Horse because of his streak of played ballgames in his career. Gehrig was a Paul Bunyon of a man that was reduced to a shell of himself toward the end of his final season. A man of valor that lived a courageous and honest life and did so by example. I did this painting of Gehrig as he was overtaken by emotion at the end of his farewell speech. This has become one of my favorite art projects, because of what Gehrig reminds me of. Without question, Lou Gehrig accomplished more in his short life than most athletes could ever dream of. The inner-strength and pride that he exhibited not only at the end but also throughout the course of his life is a testament to the man and what he was able to accomplish both on the field and off.
