Many of you may have seen this painting already down at the ballpark. I saw it for the first time yesterday when I went down with Dannie. It is in the Suite/Diamond Club lobby, right above the stairs going down to the club.
I came home and was able to trace it to a artist named Jamie Cooper who, as you can see if you click through, did mostly Rugby paintings prior. Just an incredibly cool piece of art – I hope they start selling prints one day.
