Being a weightlifter has its ups and downs. My new painting The Strongman features a little of both - up go the weights, down goes the dignity! This is the final piece for my Ringmasters & Fabulous Oddities series which will be on display at the Lyman-Eyer Gallery opening July 6. The Strongman is available to purchase through the Lyman-Eyer Gallery. Visit my page on their site for details. Small, medium, and large limited-edition prints are currently available in my online store.

The original painting and medium-sized prints are available through the Lyman-Eyer Gallery here. If you'd like a small print, visit my online store here.

So don't be shy...visit my online store here to purchase this down-home delight today!
