Cubs Win! Art
The 2016 season was as magical as it was historical for the Chicago Cubs, who had not been to a World Series since 1945 and had not won a championship since 1908. I started this painting after the Cubbies won the pennant, but could not get myself to finish it when they fell behind in the World Series. The path to the top of mountain is paved with baseballs, which represent the 108 years of futility. The ball in the mouth of the cub has the year 2016 written on it, a year I will never forget.
As a lifelong Cubs fan, there are no words to describe the satisfaction of finishing this painting with the strike through the word "someday." Finally, after so many years of ups and downs, the Cubs are the World Series Champions. #FlyTheW
