Boys of Summer

9" x 12" oil on cradled board

You have probably already seen this one. I had done a rough study of it last year, and then painted it on a larger board. I actually thought it might be done. But it sat on my shelf for months because I just kept thinking I could take it further. Yesterday I finally put it back on my easel and made the changes I had spent months thinking about. I tried to give the background and brushwork a bit more interest along with bumping up the light. I'm happy now and can call it done! 


  1. Excellent of your VERY best!!!!!

  2. I love this. I had two children who loved baseball. This is so real.
