I had painted this for my sister during my undergraduate studies at Colorado State University where I received my BFA. It had been unsigned and I told my sister I would take it back to my studio to sign. It came out of the ordeal a lot better than me. You can see only a few scratches on the upper left. On the back side there is a boot imprint and a few more scratches.
My painting made it home that night, I made it to the hospital thanks to the Denver Police Department.
