I was thrilled to make a presentation at The Norman Rockwell Museum July 2nd as the featured artist during their day long celebration of Home Run!-All American Baseball Day. I discussed my path to becoming an artist and in particular, becoming a baseball artist. Other topics included the use of reference in developing a painting and how a painting progresses from concept to final art. It was a wonderful day and I look forward to participating in other events at the Rockwell Museum and other similar venues.
Work continues for The National Pastime Museum. I just completed a second image of Mike "King" Kelly and will ship that off to the museum along with my entry in the Casey At The Bat Art Competition. I will be starting a new piece on Johnny Evers, the famous Cubbie. Also in the works is a piece on Con Daly of the Boston Beaneaters for my friends at The Essex Baseball Organization where baseball is played using pre-1900 rules and replica equipment and uniforms.
All of my images are available as beautiful, high quality prints. These prints are incredibly faithful to the originals. Each print begins as a very high resolution scan that is expertly color corrected and then printed onto the best watercolor media available. These prints are available in several sizes and presentations and are very reasonably priced. All of my art is available in print. Please allow for extra time when placing an order for an image that requires scanning and color correction prior to going to the final printing. Contact me for prices and sizes.
Also available are unique T-shirts that are created using the latest garment printing technology. These shirts are unique and will turn heads. The printing process allows for amazing color reproduction and the shirts are comfortable Hanes pre-shrunk, tag-less 100% heavy duty cotton.
Remember, I am always available for commissioned work of any size, including murals. If you have a favorite player you would like a painting of just let me know. Or if there is a family member who played baseball and you would like me to create a painting of this person I am available for this work also. I will do whatever research necessary and work with the reference you have to create a beautiful painting you will cherish for years to come!
