Basketball Player Art - Abstract Action 5x7 Greeting Card by Mark Tisdale.

This abstract action greeting card features eye catching basketball player art. It has a dreamy quality to it with the background being an assortment of colors and lights. This is meant to symbolize being in the zone or in the moment, a sort of zen quality when the world beyond the court disappears. When I first envisioned this artwork, I pictured the basketball player in this dynamic pose but I'll be entirely honest that I didn't know what this was called. A bit of hunting around and I discovered that this more or less depicts a moment during a fast break, when the team is trying to move the ball up the court. The player is likely about to pass the ball.

This basketball player art is a bit of a nod to my late father. It's not meant to be him in any sense. I never really saw him play. During my childhood he was a teacher and a coach. Basketball was both a sport he played and coached and definitely among his favorite sports. The number 42 you see on the uniform is the only direct link with my father though. That was his number when he played in school. I particularly included this because it's also the answer to life, the universe, and everything - which is a reference that probably only the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy fans out there will get and which otherwise has nothing to do with basketball.

I like to think my father would have appreciated this basketball player art, and I hope the basketball player in your life might enjoy it, too? Or if it's you that loves the sport, I hope you'll share your thoughts. Does the image on this abstraction action greeting card capture the spirit of basketball for you or not? I hope you'll let me know.
