Here is a recently completed piece I did of Brandon Snyder 1B for the Texas Rangers currently on the 40 man roster.  Hopefully he’s with the Rangers for a while.

Brandon R. Snyder (born November 11, 1986 in Las Vegas metropolitan area, Nevada) is a first baseman who is currently on the Texas Rangers 40-man roster.

Snyder was a 1st round draft pick by the Baltimore Orioles in the 2005 MLB Draft.

Snyder made is MLB debut on September 10, 2010 against the Detroit Tigers. He came in as a defensive replacement in the 9th inning. His first Major League hit, an RBI single, came against the Toronto Blue Jays on September 13, 2010 off of Blue Jay’s pitcher Marc Rzepczynski in the 2nd inning.

Snyder played 6 games on 2 separate stints with the Orioles in 2011.

Over the weekend, I took a Nelson Cruz piece and took it a little larger, and put it on a stretched canvas.  I think it turned out well.

Here is a sneak peek at the process.

Step 1, draw out the rough image and cut.  Cut, cut, and cut somemore.  You can see where I messed it up and had to repair it with tape.  Once you’ve spent as much time on drawing it out and the cutting, making a mistake makes you really want to fix it rather than start over.

Step 2, getting paint on the canvas, for this one just a light white base laid down to help the dark blue pop off the canvas a touch.

Step 3, was adding a bit of blue and letting it dry.

Then another one was done.  Each of these is 16″x20″ on stretched canvas.

Oh yeah, the Rangers are in the World Series too.
