Mermaids Playing Baseball on Main Street, Nantucket
The setting is Main Street, Nantucket in front of the Pacific Club. A crowd in Colonial garb cheers as a mermaid pitcher prepares to throw the ball to a young colonial lad, while her teammates man the bases. This delightful painting was inspired by words of wisdom from the great wit and baseball manager, Casey Stengel, "Gettin' Good players is easy. Gettin' em to play together is the hard part." Oil on board. 17 1/2 in. x 19 1/2 in., sight.
