Artist Vernon Wells paints fantastic lifelike portrait of record-holding TCU WRs

Vernon Adams: A TCU record holder, painting TCU record holders.

Erich Schlegel-USA TODAY Sports

WOW! It looks like a photograph! Former TCU wide receiver-turned-sports artist Vernon Wells painted an absolutely gorgeous portrait of receivers who've recorded 200 or more receiving yards in a single game -- that is, Jimmy Oliver, Jimmy Young, James Maness, Josh Doctson and Wells himself.

Wells' moment came against Tennessee in 1976, when he posted 204 yards on 10 receptions.

Today, he owns V. Wells Sports Art, a business he's run for more than 30 years. He's done a lot of work for professional athletes, particularly baseball players (his son is three-time MLB All-Star Vernon Wells III).
