Baseball Paintings of Roger Patrick

Sometime in the last few weeks I came across the paintings of Roger and Christy Patrick.  Roger has done quite a few pieces with a baseball theme.  I wanted to share a few of them.

This, being mostly a card blog, should feature cards on occasion.

Roger has an interesting style.  I'm not an art critic, but I know what I like.  I like this.  Some of his paintings are what I'd call 'stylistic'.  Accurate, but not defined.  I can't make out faces.  The chalk lines on the base paths are absent on one side.  All of the players are not proportional.  It doesn't matter.  The feeling is conveyed.  I like them.

While not baseball related, I had to share this.  I'm a sucker for good watercolors.  In my opinion this is a good watercolor.

  1. I love the watercolor. It's simple, yet full of light and depth.
