Opie Otterstad has done more than 1,000 baseball-related paintings. “I get teased a lot by my peers that I’m a machine,” the Texas native says. Tonight, Otterstad will be at Newbury Fine Arts, Showing his paintings “Boston Champs” (left), based on the Red Sox World Series celebration. Otterstad has done World Series paintings for the winning team for three years, but for the 2004 victors he realized, “this is 86 years of tears.

It’s a rush.” The exhibit opens at 7:
