Sending out all kinds of props to Richmond artist Jeromyah Jones for this fantastic paining of a dapper Tom Brady with a gazelle looking over his shoulder.
According to For The Win, the piece is titled “The Heart of a Champion,” and is a representation of Brady’s loves of football and family.
“That’s his wife,” Jones told For The Win. “It symbolizes his wife, Gisele, and the graceful nature that she possesses. The red carpet that bridges the gap between their two professions, the modeling world and the sports world. I didn’t just want to show him in the uniform. I wanted to show the loves of his life, football and his wife.”
I would’ve added the dim, ghostlike figure of Bill Belichick in the sky, a la Obi-Wan Kenobi, reaching out to give Brady that high five he so longs for. But hey, that’s why Jones is an up-and-comer in the art world and I’m behind a keyboard. Nevertheless, the painting is beautiful – even moreso now that it bears Tom Terrific’s autograph.
