Kitten Painting and Signed Peyton Manning Jersey added to bid site:
"This painting was not actually inspired by our beloved Denver team, but instead was a happy accident. Pumpkin, seeing what was transpiring during his painting session, quickly dried his paws and summoned his assisting apprentice to grab a brush and strategically place a small football near the center of extraordinary energy on the canvas. He felt it would give focus to the dramatic and intense motion he had already created. We can only applaud his sense of timing and simplicity, creating a small piece of epic importance."
