I arrived at Fenway Park for the legendary seventh game of the American League Championship Series hours before the start of the game. I wanted to savor the festive Fenway experience, which starts hours before the first pitch. Little did I know that the festivities would continue for several weeks to come as the Boston Red Sox sent on to win the 2007 World Series.
I set up my easel on the famous Yawkey Way – named for the long-time Red Sox owner Tom Yawkey – where a statue of the legendary Ted Williams greets Sox fans getting a head start on game day festivities. Colorful booths selling t-shirts and memorabilia, banners strung across the street, raucous taverns…all establish a carnival atmosphere.
Yawkey Way is the first watercolor study I’ve ever offered as a limited edition canvas. Fans crowded around me as I set up my easel across from Gate D to paint. For the many enthusiastic comments it was obvious my tribute to game day should be made available to Red Sox fans everywhere.
- Yawkey Way is named for the long-time Red Sox owners Tom and Jean Yawkey. In 1934, the left-field scoreboard was added and, running vertically down the scoreboard – between the columns of out-of-town scores – are the initials “TAY” and “JRY” displayed in Morse code as a memorial to the former Red Sox owners.
- Yawkey Way is the first limited edition watercolor canvas study released by Thomas Kinkade.
- The physical address for Fenway Park is: 4 Yawkey Way, Boston, Massachusetts.
- On Yawkey Way, fans will be greeted by the statue of the legendary Ted Williams – one of the heroes in the history of baseball.
