Sports artist Daniel Moore has released a preliminary pencil sketch of a full-color painting that will commemorate the University of Alabama’s 17th national championship in football.
Information about how to pre-order the painting, with prices beginning at $189, is available at www.newlifeart.com.
The website says the painting will include:
• Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and wide receiver DeVonta Smith’s winning touchdown pass and catch
• A defensive stop that includes UA players Isaiah Buggs, Da’Ron Payne, Anthony Averett, Terrell Lewis, Minkah Fitzpatrick, Ronnie Harrison, Raekwon Davis, Tony Brown, Mack Wilson and Deionte Thompson
• Coach Nick Saban celebrating the win.
The painting will also have the final score and other hidden symbolic imagery, according to the website.
UA beat Georgia, 26-23 in overtime, Jan. 8 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta to win the College Football Playoff.
Moore, a 1976 UA graduate, began painting iconic Alabama football moments in 1979 with “The Goal Line Stand,” which captured UA’s goal-line stand to defeat Penn State during the Sugar Bowl.
The print sold well, and Moore eventually incorporated New Life Art in 1979 to handle his art business.
