Describe your painting:

36″x48″ acrylic painting on wood panel, featuring a child & father playing catch.

What inspired you?

I just wanted to try and capture the pure and simple joy of playing catch with a loved one.

What is your background as an artist?

I have been painting for 20+ years, working in a variety of media including acrylics, oils, watercolors, digital illustration, and pencil (graphite and colored). I specialize in a photo-realistic style, and often with sports-related or sports-themed artwork.

Do you have a connection to Garner or did you learn anything new about Garner as a result of your painting?

As with many people in the area, we are transplants from the Midwest, but love calling Garner home. It’s always interesting learning about a city’s rich athletic history, and Garner’s is no different.
