Tom Gilleon Teebow Tipi

" TEEBOW TIPI "
Tom Gilleon - March 2012

125 s/n Giclee Canvas

So, we really did pick up the phone to ask Florida born and raised, onetime
University of Florida pitcher Tom Gilleon if there was any connection between
"Teebow Tipi" and Heisman Trophy winning, University of Florida come Denver
Bronco's quarterback. Of course, it’s possible that there wasn’t; after all, he
did spell "Teebow" with two ee’s. And, it could be a river near where he lives
in Montana; because after all, he did spell "Teebow" with two ee’s. Or maybe
even a town; because after all, he did spell "Teebow" with two ee’s.

Well, it turns out that he is just a big old University of Florida turned Bronco Tebow
fan that chose to spell "Teebow" with two ee’s. “I paint tipis,” says Gilleon. “Spelling
'Teebow' the way I did gives the painting an illusion that it is a contemporary
western work of art and not homage to a great quarterback. Actually, if you
think about it, when I painted the original, Tim was still in Florida. Now that
he is with the Broncos, I could have titled the work 'Tebow Tipi' and it could
accurately be defined as a contemporary western work of art.”

And the American flag at adorning the tipi entrance? “Did I just say ‘great
quarterback’? I think I meant to say ‘great American quarterback.’”
