A Little Painting, a Lot of American Football

Tuesday, 20 February, 2018

As you may have noticed reading this blog the past five weeks, Milano is loaded with tremendous artwork from across the centuries.

Thus inspired, I opted to work with oils today as we continue to prepare for the 2018 opening of our beloved Varese Skorpions Italian DII season this coming Saturday night against the Varese Gorillas.

As I said, I like to work with
oils and HAMMERS!

SLEDGE HAMMERS that is . . .

This one still needs more work.

Why oils?

Why hammers?

It's an American football thing.

Speaking of American football, our Senior team practice tonight from 8:30 to 10:30 . . .

. . . will be quite chilly
it appears

When I arrived at our practice field for the 6:30 p.m. start of our U15 flag practice, I noticed . . .

. . . that all of our trees had
been trimmed back severely

No problem really, except . . .

Our sleds were buried
in the loped off branches

It took six players but our sled were soon extricated.

for the folks back in California

Our Senior team practice tonight was well attended, spirited and extremely competitive.

Those are all good things to a coach's mind.
