Larry Holmes vs. Gerry Cooney


My first watercolor in a LOOOOOOONG time...Larry Holmes vs. Gerry Cooney, a cover done especially for Pat Dwyer's second pressing of his self-published book, "Professional Boxing in the 1980's. A Look Back." A tougher medium to work with than I thought! :D

    Hey Coyote, LOVE the artwork! I commissioned an oil painting in August of Sugar Ray Robinson and Carmen Basilio.
    The artist did an excellent job! I've since decided I'd like to commission another 3 or 4 pieces of boxing related art from several artists. Your artistic stlye and use of different mediums fits the bill perfectly. I'll definetely be asking you to do a commission for me at some point. Question. How do i contact Pat Dwyer? I'd like to buy 3 copies of his book. As a life long boxing fan in his 40's reading about the fighters in the 80's always brings back great memories! Thanks and i'll be in touch.

  2. Hey there! Thank you SO much for the compliments! And whenever you're ready for a commission, just let me know anytime! My price list is on your right hand side of my website and my email is artofthepaw@yahoo.com! As for Pat's book, you can find all the information you need at http://robsteth.tripod.com/. I do believe his book costs only $8.00 plus shipping and handling (according to The Ring magazine). Thank you again and I'm looking forward to hearing from you!
