Fourth and Inches

Fourth and Inches

Oil on canvas, 1979

I got really experimental with my canvas shape here. In fact, it was painted in two pieces, and designed to hang on the wall just so – I even cut out a piece of cardboard with exact markings to guarantee this.

It’s from an NFL game between the Oilers of Houston, and the Kansas City Chiefs. Number 34 depicted here is the immortal Earl Campbell.
