Canvases went to both friends and art collectors, with former St. Louis Rams teammate Chris Long purchasing a piece titled "Game Day," while a private collector dropped $7,000 on "Amazon."

Jackson hopes to spend more time on his art following the 2014 season, and the gallery is hoping to have an East Coast showing of the three-time Pro Bowl running back's work in 2015.
