Basketball art painting boy doing a lay-up
A friend of mine, Jo, took a photo of a boy playing basketball. I thought the boy doing a layup was a great shot and got her permission to do a painting of the boy. The basketball painting is 4 feet by 8 feet, acrylic on unstretched canvas.
I like this quote about basketball by James Naismith. 'The invention of basketball was not an accident. It was developed to meet a need. Those boys simply would not play "Drop the Handkerchief."
