Description Impressionist portrait of Ben Hogan. The name the Wee Ice Mon was coined during the 1953 British Open Golf Tournament.~~~~~Ben Hogan did not like course of which the Scottish were very proud. So Hogan and the people of Scotland got off on the wrong foot... at first. But William Benjamin Hogan played such a fantastic game in a manner that enamored the masses. They started to call him 'The Wee Ice Mon'!~~~~~He won the 1953 British Open in Scotland and all that after only 4 years after a horrific car crash that should have killed him.Hogan is one of those people that movies are made about and they actually did make a movie called'Follow The Sun' in 1951 with Anne Baxter as his wife and Glenn Ford as Hogan.

I am an independent, self supporting artist, working full time on my art. Full time means about on average 12 hours a day seven days a week. I have not had a non working vacation in over 10 year. Luckily I love painting, I love art, I love what I do. I also have three rescue cats, one is chronically ill and has to be hand nourished three to five times a day. I live every day as if it is my last. Art and creating is a release for me. On my blank canvas or paper, I can create any world I like. Thank you for purchasing my art.
