Moore paintings
DAPHNE, Ala. – Artist Daniel A. Moore recently completed the second of a two-painting series commemorating two historic plays from Auburn’s 2013 “Season of Miracles.”

 Limited edition Fine Art Prints and Giclée canvases are now available for ordering at, the official Daniel A. Moore website.

Moore’s original oil painting was done in connection with the 2013 College Football Game of the Year Award® which is presented annually by the United States Sports Academy.

The first print of the set, released recently, is titled “The Runback.”  This work depicts the incredible 109-yard, last-second runback by Chris Davis that knocked Alabama out of contention for its third straight BCS national championship.

“After painting and commemorating 48 Iron Bowls, and watching many more, I don’t think I’ve seen any more sensational and significant as the last one,” Moore reflected from his Hoover studio.  “Arguably, this Iron Bowl game could top them all.”

The newest Daniel Moore painting is titled “Miracle on the Plains.” This work portrays, in a two-panel presentation, Ricardo Louis’ miraculous game-winning catch that beat the Georgia Bulldogs at Jordan-Hare Stadium.  Prints and canvases of “Miracle on the Plains” are currently in production and will be released shortly.

Although most noted for his paintings of Alabama Football since “The Goal Line Stand” in 1979, Moore has now painted 18 of Auburn’s historic victories — dating back to his 1981 painting, “The Goal Line Dive,” featuring Bo Jackson’s famous Iron Bowl touchdown dive.
