I created for a good friend and avid baseball lover that had recently lost his dad. He read, an adaptation of “A Great and Glorious Game: Baseball Writings” at his fathers eulogy and I worked with his wife to create a piece that was a tribute to his dad and living your best life. I painted the entire passage on the canvas and then I played around with texture and then highlighted the last paragraph that reads:

I need to think that something lasts forever, and it might as well be that state of being that is a game; it might as well be that, in a green field, in the sun. -A. Bartlett Giamatti

I hope that everyone finds their happy in a “green field in the sun”, a basketball court or anyplace that brings you peace + joy.
