AO: About the Yankee Great – Derek Jeter Painting
AO’s passion for baseball always makes a piece something special. For AO, not a huge Yankee fan, to say the least, (especially since the Royals vs. Yankees playoff in ’78), there has always been a certain level of credit and respect a true baseball fan has to give when it come to the work ethic, professionalism, leadership and the level of consistent play a MLB athlete gives and because of that, AO felt he had to create a piece of “The Captain”, Mr. Derek Jeter. “It is always an honor to paint a piece of a great player, coach or a positive contributor to the gam, like Derek Jeter.” , says, AO.
Great Sports & Yankee Collectors Addition
This piece would be a great contribution to any sports or painting collection. Any Yankee or Derek Jeter fan would not be disappointed with this 4 foot x 2 foot canvas original in there home or work place.
