Hey there! Hope you’re having a lovely day. Just wanted to update everyone on my latest completed piece! It is a 16×20 inch painting for Seattle Seahawks’ running back Marshawn Lynch aka The Beast! The painting shows Lynch carrying the ball with his eyes surveying the field visible through his helmet shield. I was stoked to be able to get the wrinkles and pads on/through the jersey down well. It’s something I’ve been working on including, and I’m glad that it came out well on this piece. I’m extremely excited that another star player has commissioned me to do a piece for them!
Like the Dashon Goldson and Calais Campbell pieces, this piece is going to benefit Lynch’s charity the “Fam 1st Foundation.” I’m not 100 percent sure if Lynch will raffle it off or what exactly his specific plans are for the painting, but I know whatever proceeds will go to the charity (which makes me happy). The Fam 1st Family Foundation is “dedicated to uplifting and empowering youth in the Bay Area and throughout the United States. The foundation’s mission is one of empowerment and education, aiming to build self0esteem and academic learning skills in underprivileged youth.”
I’ve made it pretty clear how much I love doing paintings for charities, so I want repeat myself here. But I will say that it is exciting to do work for a charity that’s primary location is here in the Bay Area. The extreme locality of it makes it an even bigger pleasure for me. I also am a big fan of how involved and how many events the Fam 1st Foundation puts on. If you look at their website, you can see how many events they have put on this summer and how Lynch brings in other athletes to appear at these events.
Stay tuned, because I have quite a few more paintings in the works that I can’t wait to share with you!
