Hi I'm just sending you a quick message to get the word out. I finished a
huge portrait for the Babe Ruth Museum title, The Golden Babe, i'm hoping
that This EBay Auction Only Few of the Reproductions on Who Gets Your
Attention or You Can Spread the Word to Other People. If I can raise enough
funds I can afford going to GDC.



To Bid Go Here.

It is an 18 x 24 painting I did with my mouth of Babe Ruth. I was also
recently in the front page of the Baltimore Sun newspaper. Check out that
article. I hope I get more reaction on the reproductions.



God bless you all and have a great and wonderful holiday.





A few of these reproductions are signed by big-name baseball athletes
including Alex Rodríguez, Kevin Mallar, Brian Roberts, Nick Markakis.



I hope to get your help if you will to spread the word and see some
reproductions of a beautiful piece of artwork. If you're interested in
purchasing the original please let me know and we can arrange that.



In Baltimore city on 216 Emory St. you can see the original painting where
it is now on location for a limited time at the actual Babe Ruth Museum and
birthplace.



This online auction currently starts now on eBay and it is ending in 10 days
December 18. It has a reserve price on it but the bid starts at $50. I'm
hoping to get at least $200 and $300 on them. Might seem like a lot of
money but considering these are limited reproduction I only reproduced 14,
and only these are signed by one of the athletes one of them each by the
four athletes ever signed by them no more. Please spread the word and take
a bid it will be a great piece of collection.



It certainly would be heart-wrenching if they do not get bided on.



I've had the pleasure to share my talent in my story with you over the
years. Once I finally get a great opportunity to paint an amazing painting
and share it with you is your opportunity to have it in your house. I don't
think too many of these things for people to have available but this is an
incredible opportunity. The Babe Ruth Museum never auctioned off war had a
commissioned painting by an artist before then that combine with my ability
makes for great story in great history behind the value of this painting.



I hope you will find it in your heart to want this painting in your
possession. I am actually graduating from the Art Institute online, a
bachelor's degree in game art and design December 13. I'm receiving a
Dean's merit award onstage in Pittsburgh for graduation, the student with
the most perseverance, accomplish the most, and represents the heart of a
student. I hope I'll see a lot of you have my graduation party coming up.
Stay tuned.





Have a great holiday and I wish you the best.



Your friend.
