I painted this for the art collection “50 Oil Paintings Inspired by Savannah, Georgia“. Someone following my art is a big fan of the college football team the (UGA) Georgia Bulldogs and was happy to see this particular work. As for me, my idea of sports is individual athletics like dancing, skiing, white water rafting, swimming, exploring the outdoors, etc., (participating in, not watching, and not avidly in any of it, even though I was active in all of those things when I was younger). Anyway, I don’t ever watch college or pro sports of any kind, but I was pleased that my friend was excited about the bulldog tribute.
Sometimes the sporting thing to do is respect that we all have different interests, and be willing to support what others enjoy. So, while this particular painting doesn’t hold personal meaning for me, I consider it a social connection with those who love what it means to be a fan of a team, a special place, and the excitement of sharing a win. Sports as in life is about appreciating the hard work, dedication, and talent of fellow humans and being inspired by their dreams to strive toward dreams of our own, or to at least catch a break from our regular lives for a bit of fun and downtime. I can relate to that.
