Drumroll, Please...will the real 'Leg o'Man' please stand up?

Thank goodness I did two versions of the subject for our first Diana Moses Botkin Challenge! It is so difficult for some of us to conform. I worked on this painting for 3 weeks, and just at the last minute decided to do a real L**O (brandnames unacceptable) painting.

To put things in scale, most of the eight artists involved painted 5x7" or smaller. My first one is 18x36" and the second 6x12". Takes alot to keep me 'invested'...that ADD syndrome again! LOL.

I have to give credit where credit is due. Erika Nelson gave me the idea, Randy was more than happy to model...and this is one that will remain in private collection! Lifting weights 3 times a week since he was in 8th grade certainly paid off, doncha think?

Without further ado, here is Leg o'Man:

You have to go to the previous post and see the competition of the eight...all those little plastic figures are SO cute. Can't wait to see what we all do with next month's SECRET challenge. Make sure you tune in on March 15 for another group post!
Here is my real post for February the group challenge:

Hey I love the final look of your Leg O' Man! And it's great that it's like an homage to Randy's lovely Calves! Moooo Mooo! Great shape man!

I like you Le-Go My Sake too, love the peaceful palette especially!

Man you and I are so productive huh? You with your 50 pieces and me with... my 2.5x2.5 production *snort*
