Over the years the Minnesota Vikings have had some of the great receivers in the NFL - players like Cris Carter, Randy Moss, Steve Jordan, Anthony Carter, Jake Reed, Ahmad Rashad, etc. etc. etc. So when I went to paint this receiver for the new
Vikings, US Bank Stadium Art Collection
What I wanted to represent was the flying aspect of a hero or warrior of the Vikings. The Vikings had the best of the best warriors, and for so many years the Minnesota Vikings have had some great receiver players. Like the gathering of the very best Viking warriors, the Minnesota Vikings, over the years, have gathered great receivers to play along-side each other. And this painting is a tribute to them.
