My boyfriend, Graig, is an artist (a painter).
He mostly paints historic baseball scenes. Before you go anywhere, you should know that I know next to nothing about baseball. But I find his paintings absolutely entrancing. I think it's because they're so narrative, that I can tell there's a fascinating story behind each and every one, even if I could care less about sports (sorry to be such a stereotypical girl on that count, but it's just the truth).
Here are some of my absolute favorites presented with a bit of my totally non-expert commentary.
He gave this to me for Valentine's Day a few years ago. Why, yes, it totally made me swoon and became my very favorite present that I've ever received.
If you want to see more of Graig's work (or read the real stories behind the images), check out www.graigkreindler.com or his Facebook page which he updates frequently with in-progress shots and new work.
And if you have any favorites of your own, let me know in the comments section below!
