Oil Paintings: Brad & Angelina, Amy Winehouse, Snoop Dogg and Gretchen Bleiler? There’s more!

Art reflects life.  Life reflects art.

One thing is for certain, art often reflects the lives of those in the spotlight.  As shown below, new renditions of historical oil paintings protray many of today’s most famous actors and musicians.  What about the household names of the ski and snowboard industries?   Gretchen Bleiler, Jeremy Jones, Torah Bright, Sarah Burke, Jamie Anderson, Glen Plake — These athletes are in multiple films, go to awards shows, do photo shoots for magazines, and certainly interview for various magazines and online publications around the world.  Sometimes enough is enough.  Sometimes I really don’t want to read news about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie fighting about their children’s diets.  Sometimes, a little diversity wouldn’t hurt.  Time to mix it up and show action sports athletes some love!

I would love to decorate The Ski Channel office with oil paintings of the top mountain athletes.  Baller.
