This is a commission for the son of a friend. He bought another painting from me a few years ago which had the birth date of one of his sons on a parking stub I had worked into the piece. This is for the other son who likes baseball and his birthdate is 1981 – things I had to work into the piece. Anyway this is how I do baseball. I had seen an old sign in a gay bar in Phoenix. Photographed it and then sketched it – this painting is from that sketch. Unsure of myself – I went ahead and framed it. This is how she looks as of 9pm tonight.
