ARTIST: CINDY WINGO SUBJECT: HORSESHOES WITH HALOS* MEDIUM: ACRYLIC, SIZE: 48" X 48" PRICE: $2900 THIS IS A TWIST ON WHAT THE BASEBALL PLAYER FRANK ROBINSON SAID IN 1935, WHICH WAS ” Close don't count in baseball. Close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades." You get points in horseshoes for coming close even if your horseshoe doesn't circle the post and fall at its foot. Likewise, you inflict injuries with a grenade that lands close but misses the exact target. The proverb uses "only," however, and that is the key word because it indicates that you get NO credit for "almost" hitting your target (achieving your goal) in any endeavor outside of horseshoes and (throwing) grenades. This is a game of horseshoes with halos. An attempt to do the right thing even though we sometimes fall short.
