Baseball at Bert Gallery

My husband was grumbling that the NY Yankees lost because of terrible pitching last night. Yes, I am married to a NY Yankees fan!?

Baseball, the great American game, is celebrated by Robert Thornton in his “humongous” three panel painting. Kudo’s to Thornton and baseball and best of all long lazy summer days eating hotdogs in the bleachers.

The unsigned painting?

The unsigned painting? Sometimes you see such a horrible painting you wish the artist did not sign it. Then you come across a gem like this wooden fishing craft beached near summer cottages and think – why did the artist not sign this? The mystery…it is on board maybe they were painting on location and when they got back to the studio forgot to sign? Did they not think it worthy? Only a sketch? We will never know….
