Art Donovan signing the original drawing

In September I posted a new drawing, the second, I had done of Hall of Fame Baltimore Colt Art Donovan. On Dec. 11th Art did an autograph signing and benefit function here on Kent Island. The original drawing is now part of a private collection. My collector wanted me get Art to autograph it for him. Art signed the drawing and inscribed the print seen above for me.

Torrey Smith Autograph Signing 2011

Torrey Smith Autographed Drawing

Joshua and Jacob with Torrey Smith as he signs his drawing

Ravens Wide Reciever: I did this drawing of Torrey when he was a Senior at University of Maryland. This year he is a rookie with the Baltimore Ravens, and quickly becoming one of the teams superstars. In this seasons week 3 against the St. Louis Rams, Torreys first 3 receptions (74,41,18 yards) as a professional football player were touchdowns. The 74 yarder was the longest touchdown pass of Quarterback Joe Flaccos career. He was the first NFL rookie, and only the twelth player to amass three touchdown receptions in one quarter. The autograph signing was on Nov. 29th, which is also the day Joshua became a teenager!

Miss Elsie is a custom built center console fishing boat. She was built by Larry Bonadeo of Bonadeo Boatworks in Stuart Florida. This summer I worked on Miss Elsie a few times. Alliance Marine Group whom I work for, showed her at the Annapolis Power Boat Show this fall. Joshua and I maintained five boats during the show, including Miss Elsie. Larry Bonadeo was present. This drawing was a commision by the owner of the boat.
