ALI/NORTON III 

oil on canvas, 20"x24", painted in 2011

SOLD

Another knife painting that was really loose in style almost bordering on abstract. A personal favorite in this style. These kind of paintings are very therapeutic and fun whereas the accurate detailed paintings are work. This painting depicts the 3rd and final meeting of these two fighters on Sept. 28, 1976 at Yankee Stadium. Ali won by unanimous decision when Norton thought he'd won. Norton landed nearly 100 more punches but Ali still edged him out in points given by the judges.
