“Base Ball” / “The fringe side of the old west”.

I’ve had the grandest time researching and creating this piece. As early as I can find, baseball made its way out west as early as 1860 (San Francisco). I found baseball clubs in Texas and Colorado…..probably mining towns.

I drew a lot from old photos. Guys in bare feet and overalls touched my heart. Straw hats, quilted pants, small leather belts around ankles (to hold pants tight) all found their way into this piece.

I do love the fringe side of the old west.

    Your horses are great, but your ‘humans’ have a Norman Rockwell quality to them. Nice job,
