DescriptionThis is a vintage football card painting. I love football and always dreampt of what it would be like to be a football player. The only thing I ever came up with that might seem the same would be if I played on a 3rd grade boys team. I bet they would hate that. haha I'm as feminine as it gets on the outside, but a football player on the inside. I'm a fan of the Rams because I live in St. Louis but I also love a lot of the other teams, so I mixed up the colors. I can't put my Fantasy Football stats on the back because this year my stats were terrible. Last year I came in second. Is it ok to stretch the truth on your football card? This painting is painted on heavy steel in oi. I love the contradiction of hard, heavy and industrial to soft and feminine.
