GREETINGS FROM DETROIT!!!

GREETINGS FROM DETROIT!!!

The Detroit Black and Tan Series has been renamed to Greetings from Detroit! Over the past year or so, as you know, I have been creating drawings of Detroit buildings, monuments, and pieces of public art.

I have enjoyed doing this from day one over a year ago, and I decided to compile the pieces into one collection. There were 12 pieces created, so naturally, I decided to create a calendar. So here it is. All 12 Detroit drawings are compiled into this 2017 12 month calendar, which is now available for sale! $20 each. If you are local, you can pick it up or meet me somewhere, and the price is just $20. If I need to ship it, the price will be $25.00 total. Each calendar is 8.5 x 11 inches, and is hand signed on the back of the calendar. So if you've always wanted to have some of these drawings, you can purchase this calendar and have them all in an abbreviated smaller form.

The first run of calendars was a total of 10, so get yours today! I will be ordering more based on demand! This will make an excellent holiday gift for anyone, plus it's a calendar, and who doesn't want a calendar! Purchase by clicking the BUY NOW button below. Thank you! Greetings from Detroit!

Mr. Tiger, Al Kaline

NEW ART ALERT!!! Please check out my artwork page and give it a LIKE! It would help me tremendously!

www.facebook.com/ABSSportsArt 

Here is my latest painting! The one and only, Mr. Tiger, Al Kaline. Mr. Kaline is one of the all time greats, a Hall of Famer, Batting Champion, 10 time Gold Glover, and of course, 1968 World Series Champion!

Al Kaline roamed right field of Tiger Stadium and other visiting ballparks for the Detroit Tigers for more than 20 years! Mr. Kaline is the epitome of Tigers Baseball. He played the game with class, grace, and integrity. This is why I decided to finally paint him. I wanted to have a lasting piece that defined who he was to so many people in Detroit!

Please COMMENT below with your thoughts on the painting, and your favorite memory of Al Kaline!

Prints will be available for sale. Please comment below or message me if you are interested in a print. I will be getting this painting professionally photographed or scanned. I hope to have the prints available soon. I will definitely be providing many options including hand embellished canvases.

Please let me know your thoughts! I am very proud of this piece, and I am very excited to read what you think! Thank you! Please SHARE this post with all your fellow Tigers fans! Thank you again!

2015 World Series Champions

This was a Christmas commission created for one of my client's sons.  There is a story behind this.  The boy noticed, while going to Royals games throughout the season, that many of the players would point to the sky when they hit a home run or got a big hit in the game.  He felt that it was a truly special thing that he found inspiration in.  He told his mom about it, and she got an idea.  After the Kansas City Royals won the World Series, she contacted me through Facebook after seeing some of my artwork that I posted in several of the groups.  She told me about this idea, and I immediately ran with it! 

This artwork contains the boy's favorite players:  Ben Zobrist, Lorenzo Cain, Alcides Escobar, Eric Hosmer, Mike Moustakas, Salvador Perez, and Alex Gordon.  Most of the images are of the players giving glory to "The Man Upstairs" or someone who they lost, and look to for guidance, or to pay tribute to.  These players inspired the boy, and the boy inspired his mother to think about it, and the mother inspired me to create it!  The 2015 Kansas City Royals were a very special team.  They were a band of brothers that "kept the line moving" until they made it all the way to the top as World Series Champions!

The original artwork has been sold.  Prints of the artwork are available.  The prints are 18 x 24 inches, and are printed on 100 lb. gloss poster stock.  I will be signing the prints in the lower right hand corner.  The prints are $40 each plus shipping and handling.  

$40.00 each.  Plus Shipping and Handling.
