This painting was a gift to internationally acclaimed speaker, bestselling author, and podcast host, John O'Leary. I have had the extreme pleasure of seeing John twice, once live in 2019 and then just before this past Thanksgiving via Zoom. He tells a story about Jack Buck that will inspire anyone, but it definitely strikes an extra chord with St. Louisans and Cardinal baseball fans. I was so moved by the Zoom call and his overarching message of gratitude that I decided to thank him the best way I knew possible...
This original acrylic on canvas measures 24"x36" and features Jack in the KMOX radio booth at the old Busch Stadium. I added the baseball in his left hand and necktie to symbolize events very personal to John's story. The painting also features my signature glossy spot varnish with the first words Jack spoke to John in the hospital: "Kid, wake up. Keep fighting."
Prints are reproductions of original paintings using a high-quality inkjet printing technique known as "giclee."
Unframed and framed artwork is printed on archival cotton rag paper, which is acid free and will resist fading and discoloration for generations.
All framing is custom made to the exact specifications of each image, with an acid-free white mat, black moulding, and acrylic glazing (glass is prone to breaking when shipped). Most prints are non-traditional sizes and will not fit properly in mats or frames purchased off the shelf, therefore custom framing is necessary.
Canvas prints are referred to as "gallery-wrapped" because the color or image wraps around the sides of the canvas and it is stapled on the back. The canvas is wrapped around 1.5" deep wood stretcher bars and arrives ready to hang.
