Anointed Homes Art announces the new Original Painting and Officially Licensed Limited Edition Print project Commemorating the career of Former University of Alabama and Doak Walker Award winner Trent Richardson


One of the greatest game performances in history was issued by a Player who had a great platform to prove something that would entertain yet truly inspire. An opportunity to show the world what some already knew, but getting to know himself even more as the journey toiled on. A called play that was designed to go to the left side of the line was quickly sniffed out by the Auburn Defense, but with the quickness of Gods lighting Trent Richardson would stop on a mercury headed dime and charge to the right making dust of the Auburn turf and shock and awe of the Auburn Defense and Nation. 57 yards on this one play out of 200 on the day would send him directly into IRON BOWL LEGEND as well as to the studio, canvas and easel. Renowned Sports Artist Steve R. Skipper was drawn into the wind of that great, astounding and simply"Relentless" run.

The Preliminary Drawing

Now that Mr. Skipper has skillfully transferred the vision for the painting from his mind to paper, his next step is to compose a magnificent and original composition for the painting. After extensive research and exploring numerous photographic possibilities for his composition, he has solidified his final composition in a well executed pencil drawing. Because the Artist also makes all decisions of the lighting (the light, medium and dark values) for the painting in his preliminary drawings, these resulting pencil images on paper make for serious monochromatic works of art. After these preliminary processes are completed, Mr. Skipper will then turn to his canvas, brushes and oils and "bring to fruition" his ultimate Artistic vision

The Artist

Mr. Skipper is known by collectors internationally to be a master with a pencil as well as he is in oils. His detail and realism along with masterful composition will deeply impress the most critical and demanding eye. This print of his compelling Preliminary Drawing is being offered to stir even more the excitement and anticipation of each collector eager for a peek at what the Original Oil masterwork will be like. Accepting the challenge of using the single instrument of a pencil to produce the multitude of shadow, shade, tone, drama and depth is something that is rare and cherished when executed with the pride and loving care of a true Artist
