Nava Thompson replied:

Thank you Zulfiya---for your comment and vote for my oil paiting!

Robert---thank you for your interesting comments. Appreciate all of this and your fave and vote!

Are you a Dodgers Fan? I have been since 77 and always loved Fernando as well as all the other great pitchers they have had over the years. Fernando Hershiser and Kershaw among the best. Nothing beats Vin Scully announcing though, great that he's back for his 62 year! Oh and by the way, great work on this piece, now you need to add a few more Dodgers! LOL Voted and fave!

Beautiful! v

Nava Thompson replied:

Thank you Sonali--appreciate the vote!

Aha, I finally get to see it and very nice one it is too! This was back when you did oils? Have you done any more since? Very nicely painted and loved reading the biography of this great ball player. Did you know that the the "La Bamba" and "Donna" singer Richie Valens, was named Valenzuela too, and his manager shortened his name from Ricardo Valenzuela to Richie Valens. Interesting thoughts. Fave and vote

Nava Thompson replied:

Thank you Randy for commenting on Valenzuela! The other info is new to me. I did a lot of oils--of different types--some were on commission--from vacation photos. So some were sold and I do not have good photos of them. Thanks for asking---and for the fave and vote!

Artist's Description

An oil painting by Nava Jo Thompson of Fernando Valenzuela playing baseball. Fernando Valenzuela Anguamea (Spanish pronunciation: [ferˈnando βalenˈswela]; born November 1, 1960) is a Mexican former left-handed pitcher, most notably with the Los Angeles Dodgers.......In 1981, the 20-year-old Valenzuela took Los Angeles (and Major League Baseball) by storm, winning his first 8 decisions and leading the Dodgers to the World Championship. That year, Valenzuela became the only player in Major League history to win the Rookie of the Year award and the Cy Young Award in the same season, adding the Silver Slugger Award and World Series championship for good measure. With his youthful charm, devastating screwball, "Ruthian physique", and a connection with Los Angeles' large Latino community, Valenzuela touched off an early '80s craze dubbed "Fernandomania"......Valenzuela was a Dodgers mainstay throughout the 1980s, winning 21 games in 1986 and pitching a no-hitter in 1990, tho...

About Nava Thompson

Nava Thompson

My story-- There's so much color, variety and fun in exploring nature and wildlife. The 'magic' of those moments have been captured and presented here for you to share and enjoy. I am more aware of God's paintbrush as I work with close up shots of birds in action and butterflies on flowers in the morning sun. Deer and Elk are outstandingly photogenic! They appear to have been outlined with a magic marker. Amazing -- isn't it? My dream is to continue to explore---chasing the rainbows and sunsets while searching for something new and exciting. Enjoy my gallery, Thank you!
