AO on the Darold Knowles Art Work (2015)
AO’s passion for baseball always makes a piece something special. For AO, it is an honor to paint this piece that was requested by Knowles friend from his home town of Brunswick, Missouri. The collector was gracious enough to trust AO to make a piece of his friend and a hometown hero. Another great thing about this piece is that Knowles is not only an MLB All-Star, but a 3-time World Series Champ and MLB record holder.
