Acrylic on Canvas

 I started this piece with the idea of creating a tablecloth with the patterning of geometric abstraction. I chose a photograph with a child embracing his father from behind. The man was holding a booklet in his lefthand (I replace it with a bottle of soda pop). When I put a baseball in his righthand (it’s empty in the photograph) a fitting title came to mind. I rendered the work with a monochromatic palette of Red + Black and White with a spot color of Orange. I achieved the coarse blending of tonal shades of grey on the skin and clothing by implementing a layering and scrub technique I developed using a short-bristled paintbrush.
