"Take Me Out to the Ball Game", in the style of Norman Rockwell by 

30×40 oil on canvas private collection

If Norman Rockwell was a song writer instead of a wonderful artist, this might be called, “Take Me Out to the Ball Game”…..That was my inspiration.

It’s all about my daughter Blake’s life at that age,
which is the #11 on the back of her jersey…she loved the piano, playing baseball and swimming..
thank you for viewing my art…


Masterpiece Group

This is my daughter Blake at 11, (back of uniform)
shown here with the things going on in her life at the time..
she was on the town softball team, taking piano lessons, also on the town competitive swim team…and loved art..she drew her favorite stuffed animal..under the piano seat….

My painting style is described as, Classical Academic painting in oils, in the Italian Renaissance Manner …I incorporates elements into my paintings like that of the old Masters. (I use a graph on my reference and canvas,
then a charcoal sketch on the canvas, step #2 an underpainting and finally an oil painting) I hope you enjoy my work, and thank you for your visit…

    I thought I had seen this before Cathy. It is such a lovely lovely painting!

  • Thanks Lynda, I am glad that I re-scanned it…now you can see all of ’Blake’s Favorite Things’ including her stuffed animal under her piano bench….She drew it on the canvas herself….then I painted it…

    Love it…so much character!!

  • Margaret, thank you so much, I had so much fun doing this painting..BUT I had to come up with a plan of I would only paint one color at a time…there was so much ‘piano’ to paint..I think it would have been easier to paint a REAL piano..:-)
