Batting Coach

"Batting Coach" SOLD
8" x 10" oil on gessoed masonite

This is another of the pieces that I'm painting for the local art alliance's show this fall of community images. What could be more community than baseball at the recreation center? I love the way that all the shapes in this painting mimic the curvature of the coach embracing this little player.
The coach bought this painting with the emotional comment "This is why I coach!". My reply... "That is why I paint".

How Americana is this! I love how you took on the challenge of painting a night scene on top of it. Well done Pat!
