The Skipper

Atlanta Braves Manager Bobby Cox coached his last game last week when the Giants eliminated the Braves from the post-season. Bobby always kind of reminded me of my Dad.

When I started my sketch I was going to put Bobby in the dugout but as I started painting I decided a more graphic background would work better. I put his uniform number and name along with a simulated chalk line and base path. The green gave me the complementary color I was looking for and added to the baseball look.

We'll miss you Bobby.
