Advice from the Big Kid • Babe Ruth, November 29, 1924
Opening Day for the 2023 season will be March 30, with all 30 teams scheduled to play. Barring postponement, it will be the first time since 1968 that every MLB team opens on the same day.
This is only one of my favorite paintings by Graig Kreindler. It’s not only an extraordinary painting, but it just feels good especially during this holiday season. His award-winning sports work has appeared in juried shows and museums nationwide.
When discussing this painting, Graig says, “It’s hard to think of anybody other Norman Rockwell when looking at an image like the one this painting was based on. In that regard, I think one needn’t look any further than the subject matter: a ballplayer interacting with kids. It’s a motif that’s often a winning combination, and something that Rockwell utilized often in his work.”
Graig’s dramatic realism and exquisitely lifelike portraits will fascinate audiences for a lifetime! Additionally, Graig’s historic narratives that accompany each piece are as detailed and impressive as the paintings themselves. We’re both privileged and delighted to share his work with you this holiday season.
