Hi - I'm Jake Jacobson, coach, author and professional artist. I do mostly sports-action oil paintings from photographs given / sent to me. I'm sure that you're really proud of your involvement in your sport and must have a couple of really great shots of you in an event -that are sitting in a drawer or album.
Or pictures of a wife, child, grandchild in a game or event?
Let me paint that great shot in full color on a 16" x 20" canvas for a living room, den or office - that shot of the accomplishment you're so proud of. It's a terrific gift! You could even treat yourself to one!
"My lifelong hobby has become my other profession."
"During high school and college, I did cartooning and illustrating for the school newsletters and magazines. Years later, I moved from pen and ink to oils - painting mostly landscapes. When I found that I could capture a close likeness, I've concentrated on portraiture - especially in-action sporting pieces".
