Omar “Picasso” Vizquel Throws Down Some Paint


When I think of Omar Vizquel, I think of a slick fielding shortstop spraying singles all around the diamond, what I don’t think of is the man using oil paints to paint nudes. But, he is a man of many talents it seems, in September for example, he had an exhibition in a San Francisco art gallery of some of his finer works. Now, I’m no art critic, but I think he’s not half bad, and any time you can have a skeleton hang on a lady’s leg you know you’ve made me happy.

What do y’all think, should he stick with the glove or does he have a lucrative career ahead of him after he hangs up the spikes?

    He has some talent, but his style wanders. My impression is that each painting is more the vision of various influences than his own…dabling in this and that. Lucian Freud comes to mind. I’d stick with the glove (it probably will pay him more), but keep the delicious hobby.

    Don’t sell the bike shop, Omar.
