This Green Bay Packers themed painting was a commissioned piece for a publisher in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1997. They wanted a Christmas scene with Santa, including a fireplace and a few children and I was given full range to include any other Green Bay Packer paraphernalia I wanted. It was a challenge to incorporate all this into a scene from my mind’s eye. The only reference were pieces of art I had already created, which is the Reggie White and Brett Favre drawings on the wall, a photo of Vince Lombardi and a print titled “The Sweep”, which hangs above the fireplace. I clipped many photos or took my own to use as reference and created the rest of the painting. This is a limited edition print on fine art paper.
