Green Bay’s “Frozen Tundra” is rich in tradition; incomparable championships, memories of the Lombardi genius, exploits of Hornung, Taylor, Starr, and so many more Hall of Famer’s and All-Timer’s.

And then, there is Brett Farve. The Green Bay Gun.

He has been the Sports Illustrated ‘Sportsman of the Year’, the US Sports Academy ‘Male Athlete of the Year’, Men’s Health Magazine ‘Toughest Person in America’, and he is a recipient of the Make-A-Wish Foundation’s Chris Greicius Award.

In over thirty years of painting the sporting life in America, Rick Rush has captured an entire roster of legendary quarterbacks – Namath, Marino, Staubach, Manning, Marino, Starr, and others. The Green Bay Gun is not only a study of an extraordinary quarterback, it is a portrait of one of the world’s greatest sportsmen. Farve is a Herculean spirit – an athlete of extraordinary ability, explosive delivery, undaunted concentration, and fiery competitiveness.
