I was working on this Grilli/Hulk painting for a while now, but it was a surprise present for him from Sheffield Management so I had to keep it a secret. Jason received it today and you can see his comments on Instagram here, https://instagram.com/p/BRV24qpDyRJ/
It was a great honour to create this painting for Sheffield Management, to give to Jason, to recognize his tenure in the MLB.
You can contact me here, if you are interested in prints, as always a portion of the sales from the prints will be donated to The Jays Care Foundation.
Well it is almost December and Christmas is just around the corner… and I’m busy finishing all the projects I have to before then. One of those projects is my painting featuring the three biggest Blue Jays post season homers at the dome, the flip, the drop and World Series winner. I will be putting the finishing touches on it tonight and I couldn’t be more excited about it. Limited edition prints are available to order now in two sizes, 12×16″-$65 and 24×36″-$125, contact me or email me if you are interested, firstname.lastname@example.org. My 2016 limited edition collage poster prints are also available, let me know if you are interested as they go fast.
Thanks for your supports,
Well the Blue Jays season came to end in a tough series against Cleveland. Now I’ll be continuing to work on moments from the season and commissioned paintings by fans. Since it is Halloween it is time for my annual pumpkin carvings, this time I decided to capture two magical walk off moments from the postseason run. Edwin’s Wildcard walk off homer, and the Donaldson dash to end the ALDS. Here are the two pumpkins I created for them. Stay tuned for lots of art, and be sure to put in your print orders sooner than later to miss out on the Christmas rush. Thanks again for all your support.
Well it’s been a wild ride the last month or so with the Blue Jays. So many close games, so many battles, not very many bounces went their way and that led to a very rough September, but through it all the team definitely never quit. This mentality has really showed the last week, they had to win two hard fought games to clinch home field in the wild card game, then on Wednesday the magic really happened…
It started with another great job by the pitching staff and defense setup the chance for Edwin to hit an incredible walk off blast which catapult the Blue Jays to a ALDS rematch against Texas. Of course I had to create a drawing for this monumental blast, here it is. I’m looking forward to creating many more drawings throughout this postseason run. If you are interested in prints or originals you can contact me here.
Thanks again for your support. Chris.
Well It’s crazy to think the Jays season is almost at the one third point and I have been busy creating some new artwork along the way. Be sure to check out my Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/ChrisRipleyArt for my latest works in progress. It’s been a very busy month or so with us welcoming our baby boy into our family, but we are settling into a new routine now and I should be able to start spending more time in the studio again. Here are a few of my recently completed projects. Thanks again for all your support.
The Blue Jays had a great Opening Day win to start off their season. This year for my Jays Care Fundraiser I will be creating a drawing for each game they win during season. Stay tuned as I will start capturing moments right away, the first drawing will feature Marcus Stroman who had a spectacular start to lead the Jays to their victory. Thanks again for your all support and with your help I hope to reach my $5000 fundraiser goal this season.
It was another busy week finishing up these two Donaldson commissioned paintings. I couldn’t be happier with how they turned out, and now they are headed, with the clients, to spring training for some signatures! Prints are now available so feel free to CONTACT me if you are interested. I also got started on a Kobe painting and made some good progress on my Masters artwork. I’ll post some more progress pictures of those paintings soon.
It is always an exciting time when spring training rolls around and after last season it is even more exciting than ever. The Jays team that captured the hearts of all of us Canadians is back to take another run at the title, and I for one can’t wait to see them starting the ride. That being said it has been a very busy few weeks in the studio. Here are some of the projects that I have completed and are currently working on. I’m really looking forward to finishing all of these up and then moving onto some other new projects.
Thanks for all you support,
I currently have quite a few projects on the go and I’m really excited to see them progress over the next couple of weeks. Here is a picture of one piece featuring Ryan Goins.
