What do you do when a patron commissions something special to have autographed at the Baseball Hall of Fame Induction Ceremonies in Cooperstown, NY? You produce a ball and glove painting so that the enshrined player(s) can sign an almost finished painting of a ball. Once signed, I’ll finish up the painting which has been left bare in the large area of the ball between the stitches and wording.
This 9 x 11 in. painting is based on a sample of medieval glass on display in the Musée national du Moyen Âge, Paris
It’s time for another great live experience at Ansbach Artisans this Saturday night from 6-9 p.m. Come out and talk to artists, including me, creating live in the Gallery. I’ve learned a lot since my first event. I now know that I will actually get very little done on a painting. People are very fascinated and excited about my style, technique, and the encaustic medium, therefore my painting in progress will be much further along AND have plenty of mindless areas to work on. Specifically areas that don’t require loads of concentration while I talk to patrons with a hot pen tip in my hand.
