Great Fighting SpiritTartan on the Avenue is a public art installation that celebrates the Ryder Cup and benefits the Ronald McDonald House. I painted this over sized golf ball for the European Ryder Cup team. I worked with the team's captain, Jose Olazabal, to come up with a thoughtful design honoring the late Seve Ballesteros.
