Art Is A Wild Mind and A Disciplined Eye
A blank canvas is a wilderness of possibility, like the tension of holing a short put, or the focus on the line of scrimmage at the snap of the ball – a blank canvas waits.
Bob Mueller’s wild mind creates movement in his work – he says, “Sports Art must move you!”
