Artist Statement Denny's passion and love for "pencil and paints" are gaining him increased notoriety among museums and private collectors. Over the last several years, Denny has worked closely with the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody, Wyoming and has had art included in their Annual Art Auctions. In the Fall of 2005, Denny had two pieces accepted into the prestigious "Booth Western Art Museum" for their permanent private collection. Those pieces are "Horse Capture" and "Chief Tosh~A~Wah." In 2008, the Booth purchased another piece from Denny of Jim Dunham who is one of the directors at the museum. In 2006, the family of the late, great Curt Gowdy commissioned Denny to paint his portrait which is the only portrait ever done of him. Lastly, Denny has been hired by Art Rooney, Jr., owners of the 2008 NFL Superbowl Champions Pittsburgh Steelers to paint many of the old Steelers from the 1940's on up to the 1970's Super Bowl Teams. In 2008, Mr. Rooney purchased Denny's pencil study and the oil painting of Pittsburgh Steeler, Troy Polamalu. He donated the pencil study to the John Heinz History Museum in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and he donated the oil painting to the NFL Hall Of Fame, in Canton, Ohio. What an honor for a "Lifetime Fan" and former resident of "The Steel City."
