Chris Felix (1968- )
An Artist who specializes in Fine Art Acrylic Sports Paintings. A graduate of Elder High School and the College of Art Advertising in Cincinnati, Felix first received recognition for his art as a sixth grader at St. William School when his pencil sketch of Johnny Bench won him a Cincinnati Reds autographed baseball in a local department store's "Draw Your Favorite Reds Player" contest. Chris's Art career has included being a Graphic Designer, a Scenery Painter for major amusement parks and Toy Prototype Painter for Hasbro and Warner Brothers to name a few.
Felix hopes as an artist to create images that not only excite the eye but create a thought or feeling of passion inside the viewer as well.

I have to say that Chris Felix is one of my favorite artists here at the artist sites! That could be mainly because of the fact that I love fine arts and he being specialized in fine arts pretty much sums up why I like his paintings. Almost all paintings of Chris Felix are realistic and beautiful and his passion for baseball could be very well seen here. My favorite in this list is the “Sandberg hits!” headphones
you are very good with acrylics love all your works.
