Take Me Out to the Ballgame
Last week was the 22nd annual Girl's Little League World Series Softball Tournament next door to me at Alpenrose Dairy. It is a BIG deal in the little league world. Big enough that the finals are broadcast on ESPN. I took my oils and my camera over there a few times and set up and painted these. The results are a combination of Plein Air (on location) and studio work. The most fun was the reaction from the girls. They were so amazed and interested. I got a lot of "I can't do that" to which I would reply "I can't hit or pitch or run like you do!" All in all it was a huge and rewarding challenge. I even got my 15 minutes of fame (actually 15 seconds!) because ESPN filmed me painting the bottom one.
As always, a big thank you to my patrons - your support means so much!
