This panting is titled PUGET MOUND, one of Bob’s favorites which he created for Mario, his stepson, and presented to Mario shortly after he bought his first house a few years ago.
Bob: “Mario was an excellent high school baseball pitcher, and while he wanted the model in an outdoor setting–we chose Puget Sound–I couldn’t resist placing a baseball in her right hand as if taking the catcher’s sign and getting ready to go into a pitcher’s windup. Also, her stripes of navy blue and pale green resemble the colors of the Seattle Mariners.” PUGET MOUND was a gift to Mario; sorry, no Giclee prints are available for sale at this time.
Robert Emmet Boyles, known to many as “Bob” or to some as “Bobaloo,” is a retired sports and product marketing executive and published book author. He also is a long-time artist of realistic images, working in oil paint on canvas.
Bob’s art is offered for sale on this website in the form of limited-edition, high-end Giclee process photo-to-canvas prints.
“Music is a great companion to wielding a paint brush. Don’t judge me, but I enjoy really varied tastes such as early ‘60s surf guitar instrumentals, Reggae, ‘60s psychedelic, Motown and Memphis soul, a select few of ‘70s Southern rock bands, and really loud ‘80s-‘90s rock bands.”
