Here is the third and final portrait of the Icon Series that Mrs. Wilco drew of Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and now Tony Parker. I was hoping to unveil it today after a terrific performance he had in Game 3, but things went differently, and he tweaked his hamstring, but here it is, in all its glory -- and all his Frenchness.
At the same time, I'd like to make one last appeal on behalf of my better half, for you to please go and vote for her (entry #14) in the finals of the You Be The Judge Contest at's associated with Fine Art Connoisseur, Southwest Art, PleinAir Magazine and a number of other excellent artistic publications.
Mrs. Wilco is in the running for a $10,000 prize that could literally launch her career as an artist, and if you haven't aready (or if you have and can do so again) please take the time to go and vote on Brian Neher's site where the contest is hosted. The piece is called "Live Model 1" by Michal Dye, and she would really appreciate it if you'd take the time to go to the bottom of the page and click next to "Entry #14" and click the "Vote" button at the bottom of the page.
Below is an image of her entry.
Thanks so much for your help. And let's hope that Tony's fine on Thursday.
