Softball reflection

A small still life of the last softball from what used to be a vast collection. My childhood friend and I grew up near a softball pitch... anything that went over the fence we considered ours.

I'm adding this one to Illustration Friday's "Toy" theme. Sports fans may find that a stretch (or insulting) but, to me, it is intermingled with fond childhood memories of banana seat bikes, Rubik's cubes, skateboards and action figures.

Not a stretch nor insult at all: but a very nice painting and recognisable story. We have all been on both sides: loosing and gaining (tennis or foot) balls.

Beautiful! It's the kind of "quiet" still life that I enjoy doing as well. Nice job!
