"The Playoffs" in-progress - baseball oil painting


"The Playoffs"

I enjoy painting "baseball" themed art.  I think its fun to try and capture the detail in the old leather and to tell a little story with each one I paint.  My work is really about "painting birds" and the last few years I have been incorporating the "birds" into still life arrangements, and also "sports themed" paintings.

This is an in-progress oil painting of 2 baseball gloves.  I started it during the 2013 "playoffs" baseball season.  You will have to tune in again to see which "bird" I chose to paint into my oil painting I call "The Playoffs."   It is 11 x 14" and this photo shows the early stage of the painting.
