Early work on the painting
This was an 8x10 painting, so it went pretty quickly once I got started.
More detail added
Here you can see I've added some more detail and more shadows. It's almost completed, but not quite where I want it to be. This painting is actually an enlarged version of his 1951 Bowman card. I chose not to include the "name box" included on the original card, because I felt it took away from the painting.
The Final Product
Well, here ya have it. This is what the final product, which is hanging on my wall, looks like. I actually put the painting in my scanner to get a better picture. The colors are a bit stronger than the actual painting, but it turned out okay. I'm hoping to either give the painting to Mr. Garver, as a gift, or at least have him autograph it for me.
