"Here’s the shocking part: It’s a painting." -USAToday
"The talented Rossin was able to convey Aaron's traits in his portrait painting, and the results are undeniably fantastic" -YahooSports
With my portrait of Hank Aaron heading to the Smithsonian this season, I am humbled and honored by the reflections on my work by the press. Painting these historic American figures has been one of my greatest joys in my line of work. This portrait not only represents America's sports hero, but also the gentle and kind spirit of the great Mr. Aaron. I am glad to be apart of celebrating Mr. Aaron's 80th birthday!
