Artist's Description

This is a painting (NOT a vector) of Blackjack Mulligan and Wahoo McDaniels in an Indian Strap Match from the mid 70s back in the old NWA days. For those who may not know about the NWA (Southern wrestling ) it was the National Wrestling Alliance. Ric Flair Nature Boy got his start among others there. Blackjack, who’s real name is Robert Windham sent me this photo personally from his collection. I donated this work to his mission. He and his wife are strong christians, The send money to the needy along with donations. Blackjack has signings at his ranch . He is not in the best of health and does not travel like he use to so the people who wish to donate come to his ranch, meet him and donate. He signs photographs for them as well and now art too! I am MORE than happy to help. He gets fans from all over the world who come to see him. I have his permission to post the art here. I didn’t really want to sell it but seem RB doesn’t have a no sale option button. Therefore any sales on this art will be donated back to Bj’s mission and for the cause of helping the needy.

This art is a digital painting.Painted using Photo Shop. It looks like a vector, but is not. The shapes used to create this image are all hand drawn using the lasso tool and the pen/ mouse pad. then the colors are dropped in with the bucket tool. It took many hours to complete.
