Griffey, 10"x 20" acrylic on canvas.

Here's a painting I just finished for daughter Claire's boyfriend's graduation present. Claire told me Drew's favorite baseball player was Ken Griffey Jr. which made this fun because he was one of my favorites too. Griffey was a great hitter, but I really admired the way he played the outfield with a joyful enthusiasm and excitement. He could catch any ball he could run down and I think this scene depicts that. I wanted to use the same monochromatic gray colors I used in my "A Fine Arm" painting, but on the cooler spectrum for a more modern look and I think it came out well.
