The sunlight on Ruth's uniform? Incredible.

Your son? The same.

Thanks so much, David!! We're completely over the moon with excitement/joy/anxiety/exhaustion. What a surreal trip it's been so far, and we're only 12 days in...

And Dan, doesn't a thread have to be retired for five years before being enshrined?

I hadn't thought of that...it might be a long wait.

Graig,
That study of Gehrig is a winner, almost as good as the photo of your son. Another prodigy in the Kreindler household no doubt. Can't wait to see his first Nettles.


Bill

Thanks so much, Mark and Bill. It's no surprise to tell you that we're experiencing ALL the emotions.

As I alluded to on Facebook with David, I just need to find him a nice vintage Highlanders onesie for the colder months!

Hey all,

Hope this entry finds everyone well and keeping cool.

I got these two paintings back from the photographers today and thought I'd share:


Roberto Clemente, July 3, 1955, 24" x 18"


Honus Wagner T206, 10" x 18"

Both of these are part of the back load of commissions I've been trying to finish up in the last few months. It's amazing how much having a newborn can slow things down!

The Clemente was very much a labor of love, as I went pretty batshit when I first saw that the actual photo from this existed. I've always loved that '56 Topps card, so being given the opportunity to recreate what it might have looked like in person was an absolute honor. I hope the client enjoys it as much as I did making it.

The Wagner, though very time consuming, was also good fun. I don't normally love doing these card commissions, as I feel like I don't really add anything special to them, but I definitely gave it my best to create sort of a trompe l'oeil effect, which I think works. Hopefully.

Anywho, back to the easel in an attempt to continue getting caught up. I'll also be having some new color studies up on eBay in the next few weeks, so if anyone is interested in hearing about them or getting a preview, just drop me a line.

As per usual, any thoughts, comments, or critiques are ALWAYS appreciated.

Thanks for reading!

Graig
