Verlander Pieces...

Everyone needs a celebrity collector, and I just got my first one. Justin Verlander, pitcher for the Detroit Tigers, commissioned these pieces last month. I had done smaller pieces that he saw, but they had already sold. Hope this is the first of many!


Ball and Mitt, each are 12x12", oil on linen panel, SOLD

  3. That baseball is awesome!! It would e really cook to put either your sgnature on it or a famous signature on it. I did one of a chinese takeout container I thought was cool enough to paint and put it right on a chair in front of me and painted it, then signed it on the side of the container lol. Nice paintings and your colors are great.

    1. that's a great idea! the ball did have signatures on it... but i was scared i was going to mess up the ball and also thought there was a possibility it want going to add anything to it. i shoulda tried, though.

  4. Great story. How cool is that! I was born a Tiger fan; it's in my DNA. Looks like the ball he used to saw that batter's bat in half.
