We did it....

This is a recent painting I did for David Price as a fundraiser for his foundation. David was he number one draft pick of the Tampa Bay Rays. He is from My home town and this picture was something I have wanted to paint since last year when I saw this moment. For me it expresses the true joy in baseball. I think it was the final inning in the playoffs and David came in to the ninth inning and closed out the game sending the Rays to the World series.
It reminded me of why little boys grow up pitching the final out in our "backyard" stadium to do just what David did. Make it to the big leagues and make his dream come true. Congrats!
