Christy Mathewson painting

I finished a new baseball painting today; this one of Christy Mathewson. It was a gift for my dad (who occasionally contributes to 3-DBaseball), and will be hanging in one of his baseball rooms soon. Note that Mathewson does remarkably in BSAB (BrushStrokes Above Background) here.

This is great, if you have others I'd love to see them, and would definitely consider trading some of these dead green presidents to take some off your hands.

Thanks. I posted one I did of Tony Gwynn a while back:

And another one I've done for my dad in the past, of Josh Gibson:

The ones I've done already are all owned by someone, but I'm always open to doing commissions. If you're interested, you can email me at kitikami (a) gmail (dot) com

I love it! I wish I had the spare cash right now to commission a piece.

I like the way you used light and dark in this piece. It reminds me a little of Rembrandt chiaroscuro.

Thanks, Mike. I think working from black-and-white photography really suggested the chiaroscuro-like approach. The photography from that era really pushes the highlights and shadows, and I wanted to keep some of that kind of look in the painting even after adding in more mid-tones to better define the form.
