Baseball Alphabet
I started this series thinking that I would focus on the jerks and juicers, but as I was painting Alex Rodriguez I quickly realized that there are far too many interesting characters in baseball to limit myself in any way. These are actual players whose first or last names correspond with the alphabet. They wear invented uniforms with the designated letter on their hats and sometimes their jerseys. I'm sure you know of a better "A", or think Nolan Ryan should have been "R" and not "N", but that's not the point. These are paintings more than ballplayers, but by being ballplayers they free up a whole world of color, uniforms, Americana, history, shape, nostalgia, memory, and best of all - paint.
