Ancient Poses, Modern Art

I thought that it would be an interesting idea to pose some of my favorite players in the style of ancient Greek and Roman statuary.

Here’s the image that inspired the painting. It’s a natural pose for a ballplayer, though I replaced the boar with something more appropriate.

One version of the digital mock-up. I ended up putting the player’s name on the bag because I like the way that it was done on the Boston Garter series. The bag itself is similar to some bags that were used to carry practice baseballs. Charles
