acrylic on baseballs; 14x14x3”

“The pandemic wreaked havoc on this year’s baseball season. With not as many games being played, what do you do with all those extra balls? Make a wall sculpture. So I glued 25 balls together, painted them with bright acrylic paint and hung them directly on the wall, no backing or frame.”
