The Splendid Splinter A Tribute to Ted Williams
12"x22" Giclee on Watercolor Paper signed and numbered
I did the pencil original of Ted Williams in Newport, Rhode Island, when we had our gallery up there close to Boston. He was the No. 1 request from people coming in that summer (2010). I was a Boston Red Sox fan as a kid and always admired him. He did it all and he had the most amazing swing. It is a plain black pencil on paper original. I placed him just on the baseball field, with his bat slung over his shoulder, ready to go. 1941 was the most significant year of his career so we have 1,941 in our limited edition. Among his other feats, that was the year he batted over .400 in a single season, he's the last player to do that. I call it "The Splendid Splinter,'' which was one of his many nicknames.
