    Default 24x30 mixed media acrylic on canvas of 2011 MVP Blaine Gautier....feedback accepted 8-)

    This will be autographed and put in the Leukemia and Lymphoma Gala Auction....my question for the die hard memorabilia fans:

    1. Who would you get to sign it (if anyone) besides Blaine?
    2. What color would you suggest to use?
    3. Where on the Canvas?


    Thank you guys for the feedback

    I did this for a living for 20 years---As time goes on many might not remember that it was for the MVP of the NO Bowl of 2011 ( have to be careful not to overload the writing)---most space and greatest contrast area is the top left---A matching Red or Black would pull out the uniform colors---Think the credits could go under his left arm and the auto graph on top left---My problem was always wanting to do TOOOOO much but a quick quote like 'WE held on to the Rope" and then a big BLAINE GAUTIER sig would be cool!!! Anyway those are some suggestions!!! Hope they help---Oh and the script on top left and bottom right balance that particular treatment!!!!Sig has to be black and not RED---Maybe a stacked flushed right MVP

    New orleans bowl

    December 17, 2011---not sure of the date!!!

    Then you might as well put the whole team, Blaine's signature...bc it's a pic of Blaine and Hud's because probably the only other sig you can just put without putting the entire team. Baer did make the kick but did you forget who went 50 yards in 30 seconds? You could point to a lot of things that woulda decided the game.

    I agree. Just Blaine and Hud. For example, I have Harris's #46 blackout jersey signed by Alonzo, and then I'll eventually get Hud to sign it as well. I would do the same if I owned this portrait.

    I'd say bottom right. Its a nice painting, so let the painting be the focal point

    Not only the last drive but handling those low snaps for the entire game... I'm still wondering how he did that.

    Their D-Lineman must have been in our centers head to cause all those low snaps.

    I still marvel at how Blain made it work.

    I really think on occasion it caused a blind spot for their D-Line and actually bought Blaine some time. The other thing is I bet it had the look of a draw sometimes which also may have served to put them on their heels temporarily.

    He was incredible.

    Remember the cause of the low snaps was our center Andre Huval's injured hand!!!
