This is Pittsburgh Steeler Defensive End, Brett Keisel from Greybull, Wyoming. I posed him where he hunts, which is up on the famous Carter Mountain Range. This is located right above where we live in Cody, Wyoming. He and his father Lane, have hunted this area for many years. Matter of fact, this is the very area that I hunt as well. It’s absolute God’s Country with a view that is second to none!Around Brett’s neck is a grizzly bear claw necklace along with turquoise and bone necklaces as well. He is holding an original “Lancaster” muzzleloader rifle that was made in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. It is almost 200 years old.

This painting is traditional oils on museum-grade Masonite. The finished size is 18″ x 24″.

Original has been sold.

One little side note, if you look close, you will see a small pair of buffalo tracks after my signature. This is to commemorate Brett’s High School mascot and my company name.

I want to thank Brett for allowing me to paint his image. Also, I want to thank my wife Leigh, for taking her valuable time to photograph all the work in progress images of this painting.

Please check out the other portrait that I did of Brett as a Pittsburgh Steeler, titled “:09 Seconds Remaining.”

Original has been sold.

Denny’s painting of a Wyoming Spirit was featured on the cover of the Jul/Aug 2013 issue of the Backwoodsman Magazine.
