A simple visual expression of the oft’ time artristry of throwing a baseball within the reasonable parameters of it being hit by the batter while at the same trying to make it unhittable. This painting is most certainly a frozen moment if not nano-second. The extreme detail of the ball contrasting with the blending in the background gives the tableau the appearance of 3 dimentions in real space. In painting it this way I am able to trick the brain into interpreting the depth of field of the ball and that of the pitcher are different. This actually “lifts” the ball from the canvas and makes it appear closer, WITHOUT the viewer to wear glasses or use any device.
The painting is on a 30 × 24 inch canvas, rendered in acrylic
