In this work not only did I want to show case the player himself but I also included some special people in the crowd. The people are the children of the person who commissioned me to do the work.
It took about a month for this person to find out about his children being in the painting. What had happen was that after just checking out his favourite player, this person hung the painting behind his desk at work. Over looking the back ground until I came over to his office and asked if he found his kids in the painting.
There are three kids in the crowd. Can you find them?"
