Even this grouchy ex-prof (football coaches are paid too much) who is not even a football fan (baseball is the only REAL game) has a touch of championship fever.

Congratulations to Alabama and Georgia, and best of luck to my many friends on both sides of the stadium.

For those who are interested: This watercolor was done with Kuretake (Japanese) watercolors, which dry cleaner and brighter than ones I normally use. One of the downsides, however, is that colors don’t mix together very well on the paper.


Here are some of the Facebook comments

  • I just want you to know that your paintings are just great you are so creative. An author, a painter, and a teacher, a true renaissance man. Thanks for sharing them.
  • If it’s football I’m going to like it! (Long story behind that statement). Even this HUGE UT fan loves this painting. You are so good!!!
  • Love it. I have both Georgia and Alabama fans here so it’s all good with me.
  • Never used that type of Watercolor, so thanks for insights.
  • Barely have done any watercolors. Prefer acrylics, perhaps because I used them first when I “discovered ” painting a few years ago.
  • Great painting Jim but we must say Roll Tide Rolll!! Love my Bama football!
  • Awesome painting. Your talent (God’s gift) is amazing. I’ve been showing a lot of your postings to Douglas and he realizes even more how fortunate he is to have a piece of your work. Looks like Sally chose a paint that describes her. Beautiful and vibrant.
