Day 4 - Wanna Play

Day 4 - Wanna Play

Ever wonder where is that baseball?

Wonder how many have been left out in a field somewhere.
I know as a kid, we had a vacant lot as our baseball field,
One of our dads put up the backstop of some left over chain link
and once or twice a summer another of our dad's would mow it.

We lost a lot of balls in the tall grass 
and many runs were scored because we couldn't find the ball,
and on more than one occasion we had to suspend play
until we found the ball.

  1. Love your story about this painting. Sounds like you had a lot of fun as a kid. This painting helps to tell the story. I really like the composition.

  2. What a fun painting, Sharon. I love it! I enjoyed reading your story also.

  3. I loved playing baseball in our lot. Great memories about that. The boys in my neighborhood didn't want me to play until I won a new bat and ball at St. Susannah festival. I told them if they wanted to use my new bat they had to let me play. I was a pretty good hitter. Ya never see anything like today. Too sad!

  4. The background story really gives your painting life. You are so right. You never just see kids out playing ball anymore unless they're in organized, sponsored, uniformed leagues. It would a wonderful thing if video games would go away and more kids rediscovered playing, reading, and nurturing their imaginations.
