National Pastime Museum Commission

Sharing a recent commission project for The National Pastime Museum which is a virtual museum dedicated to educating people on the history of baseball. The organization contacted me several months ago to create three paintings - one 60" x 48" and two 24" x 30".

The project required three mock-up sketches before completing the final pieces. They also wanted two of the paintings to represent Christie Mathewson & James 'Cool Papa' Bell along with an interpretational piece for the popular poem 'Casey at the bat'.

Here are the mock-ups;

Here are the final paintings;

A big ‘THANK YOU’ to The National Pastime Museum for choosing me to create the artwork. It’s an honor to be a part of the museum art collection.
