A Massachusetts artist is on a quest to complete a painting of Fenway Park’s iconic left-field wall known as the Green Monster in all 50 states.M-C Lamarre, of Martha’s Vineyard, says she has painted the Green Monster 211 times so far across 23 states and three locations in Canada.The journey started in 2004, when a sibling asked her to paint the Green Monster in a nursery. Since then, she has recreated the famous Fenway feature in bars, basements and backyards.”Sixteen years at it and it actually does follow the baseball season. So I generally tend to do my travel and my painting from April to October/November,” Lamarre said.One of Lamarre’s most recent Green Monster paintings is on one of the walls at Home Plate in Norton, a restaurant that also has a Green Monster painting inside its Taunton location.”We’re trying to do a Green Monster to give us that Fenway feel. If they can’t get to Fenway, they come to Home Plate because this is the next best thing,” said Rob Anderson, owner of Home Plate.Before Game 3 of the American League Championship Series on Monday, Lamarre said she initially planned to paint 100 Green Monsters but noted that “it kept calling me back.””Here’s hoping for a win (Monday night) and perhaps I’m on my track to 300 Green Monsters. Who knows?” Lamarre said.
