I made this for a friends birthday, the text says 'Keep Yer Dukes Up'  It looks better in person, honest!

I like it. Is that Rocky Marciano? He's my DH's favorite boxer.

Yup, it's Rocky, I picked him because I think he's super cute Wink I really don't know much about boxing though, but I love vintage boxing pictures, esp. Irish bare knuckle pictures.

Thanks, I realize now that I should have put a layer of gesso on first, but when I was making it I thought I liked the canvas showing through, alas, now I don't and it's way too late to add it!

Hey-I'm stalking your pieces that I missed!! This is great. You now-you could always colour wash thinned out gesso over it. But I guess if it was a present it's gone by now,duh!!

I like this and think that its cool how 3-D the birds look in the first pic. Amazing the color difference a flash will make.
