Are You Playing in the Masters?

No Masters No Golf Not This Year

As a sports artist one would think that I played golf as it is a leisurely sports activity for a guy getting into my age bracket.  There are not many sports I can play at my age, much less in the Masters.   I once managed a golf driving range and took quite a few lessons so you’d think I would want to get out on the links and bang the ball around.  But that is the problem – I would just bang the ball and chase it in to high grass on either side of the fairways.  I lugged my golf bag around with two ball retrievers – just in case I broke one.   Even after all the practice and golf lessons and videos I watched the only way I could lever lower my score was to cheat.  My best method was

using the “close enough to the hole” as if you were tossing grenades.   That grenade method of measurement of success (close enough) could turn a four put into a two.

Time-lapse Video (34 seconds) Speed Painting of Golfer

So for relaxation I took up the “sport” of painting – with a bit of success.  If you visit some of the newest sports stadiums or arenas in this country you may stumble upon a few of my paintings.  (See Bio)  .  The time lapse golf video you see here is a sample of what I do with paint.  It’s short – the demonstration painting in an expressionistic and impressionistic manner is about 34 seconds and the actual sports art is about seven feet.  If you are on my blog you surely know that I am a sports artist, painting professionally for sports stadiums and arenas and other commercial projects.  I take commissions and would be happy to do a sports selfie of you playing your favorite sport.  You can reach me through my contact pages and I will be happy to discuss the possibilities with you.
