Baseball Art by Art

Several years back I met a street musician in Madison, Wisconsin.  Art Paul Schlosser.  Art Paul is not just a a musician, he's also an artist.  We've stayed in touch over the years, mostly through facebook.  At the end of November he posted one of his paintings.

It really caught my eye.  I asked him if I could share this and could he tell me a bit about it.  Here's his answer:

When I was young I was a big baseball fan. We used play in my back yard and I collected baseball cards. I used to enjoy the free bubble gum that came with each pack.Well some of the cards mentioned that some of the players would also play winter baseball. I was having a couple of winter art-shows and I made one of the snowmen and some snow-people paintings and one of them sold so I was thinking if I did more. So in doing more I thought how about one about winter baseball. I painted it with acrylic on canvas and it is either 10 inches by 10 inches or 12 inches by 12 inches.

I did an interview with him last year, if you're interested.  He's a character.  You should be interested.
