'Hitman' Bret Hart...wrestling with watercolors

Here's a quick post while I get ready to start some new sketching. Its a watercolor painting I did over a year ago of one of my top-5 all-time favorite wrestlers Bret 'the Hitman' Hart. Having grown up on a steady diet of 80's WWF, I was/am a huge fan of him, Ravishing Rick Rude, Ricky 'the Dragon' Steamboat and Rowdy Roddy Piper.

Having met Bret several times in the late 90's did nothing but help raise my opinion of a childhood favorite. He was always a cool dude with us and never really ever said no to taking pictures or signing autographs. As a fan, and considering all the things he's gone through over the last decade, it was an extra bonus to get to see him again at last year's Wrestlemania.
