What inspired this painting you ask?
Growing up in Wisconsin, I adapted the tradition of watching the Packers play on our family television set. It was one of the few times we sat together and rallied for our Green Bay Packers. It seemed, for those couple of hours, it brought us closer. I remember the ups and downs, and twist and turns the game offered. It surely would keep us on the edge of our seats.
There were many other things we watched on the screen. My dad worked every day on our family dairy farm. He seldom had time for anything else, but when he did, we would often watch a movie together. It was a very special and rare time to have everyone gather at the same time. It was one of my favorite memories as a kid. The television glowed with its light radiating its stories into our lives. How many stories has the TV given us? What kind of stories can you make with some of the characters in this painting? Can you spot a Packer, a Bear, or Cardinal fan? How about a lion, a Cowboy, Giant, Viking, or Buccaneer?
