It’s five years today since I was last visited a ballpark in the United States. So, self-indulgently, here are some paintings of all the major league parks I have visited.

It’s entirely my own fault that I’ve not been to the United States for five years. I’m not gonna go into too much detail, but I did overstay a visa, though it was due to some terrible advice from an immigration lawyer, and the next time I wanted to visit, I was denied a visa. Oh well. One has to accept one’s mistakes. Having said that, I miss being in the United States. I miss the people, the bars, the cities, the landscape (specifically in the Pacific Northwest), and I miss the baseball. Baseball in Mexico is fun, but it’s not the majors. One day, though, I will return. Don’t know when, but damn it, there are more ballparks I need to do pictures of.

(I should note that I went to the SkyDome quite a few times in 2010 and 2011, but nothing in the U.S. since this day in 2009. I don’t want y’all Canadians to feel left out, so here’s a picture of your SkyDome.)

As is normal with such things, click the images to make them grow in size.

Finally, it’s vaguely interesting to me that whenever I do any sort of ART about ballparks, Dodger Stadium is always the best one I do. Proof–proof I say!–that it’s the most beautiful baseball stadium in the world.

Craig Robinson is not a Child, a God, a Pilgrim, a Rock, the Forest, the Resurrection, the Cosmos, the Law, or Damo Suzuki. Nor is he trying to break your heart. He does have a Web site, though. It's called Flip Flop Flyin'.

Agreed about your Dodger Stadium painting. Can I buy it?
