Leo with Yankee Cap - This work is a depiction of my friend Leo. Leo is born and raised in New York City but now lives in Boston. I have never not seen him wearing a New York Yankees baseball hat. That hat is iconic and there are some many different versions of it. By describing it everyone sees the hat they envision.
