“I love baseball,” he explains, “and there is no better or purer example of the game than the Cape Cod Baseball League – a summer league for college all-stars. While feeling the cool Cape Cod breezes and warmth of the fading sun, watching the interaction of the players and fans, and inhaling the aroma of freshly popped popcorn at a Brewster Whitecaps game, it occurred to me that there was nothing better. If I really wanted to paint what moved me, what I loved, this was it.”
