Ryan Miller. The goaltender for the Buffalo Sabres! A true hero in our town!
I composed this oil painting on my Christmas break. I was also working on other commissioned drawings while I was working on this project, so i had to take time off to finish it, but I did finish it within the time frame projected!
This is my first realistic-type painting, however the painting is painted heavily with many brushstrokes and there is alot of color blended to create other colors.
I used silver oil paint that cost me a little more than $25.00 for a small tube. It contains aluminum, so it was very expensive.

This website is hosted through NHL.com, so I was very excited to see that my artwork made it such a long way, especially to help a good cause!
