I grew up watching Evel Knievel on Wide World of Sports like lots of kids my age. My brother and I played with those cool toys too! Oh how I miss those! He led quite a life and not all of it good but you have to admire someone who did it on his own terms and I think his heart was in the right place.

I started painting this one just before Christmas and recently found it and tinkered with it a bit more before becoming complacent with it. I do really like it but for right now I am content to leave it be in an unfinished state. Plus right after I decided that, I cropped it and (for the moment) think it works better now. I never really know. I have both an early "blocked in" stage with the whole painting and the (currently) final cropped version. All done in ArtRage 3!
