Latos is my favorite Reds pitcher and I wanted to do something creative with a painting of him. The initial idea was to do a split uniform, part home, part away. Then I brainstormed ideas for a piece that used lettering as part of the background. This pose was perfect, as it would perfectly center Latos acrossed a 24x36" canvas with his windup in the shape of a capital "T." That gave me the idea to do a painting where his pose served as the "T" in "LATOS," which I decided to paint with Old English font to match the script on some of his tattoos. The purple background was chosen to give a bold color splash.
The original is hanging in my mancave and is signed large in silver ink pen. This is quite possibly my favorite painting to date.
This painting took 51 hours to paint.
Available in 12x18" or 20x30" poster print or 20x30" canvas. All prints come artist-signed with the ink color of your choice. Canvases are ready to hang and stretched on thick 1.5 inch wooden frames.
