Let the Games Begin

Pin It
"Let the Games Begin"
Oil, 6" x 6" on canvas panel.
$200.00 unframed.

I ended up getting a horrible cold this weekend and so instead of painting, I stayed in bed and watched the Olympics! Although just to be clear, had I stayed healthy, I still would have watched the Olympics. I have three different TV's recording all of the coverage so I am convinced I will not miss a single event.
In honor of my complete fascination with the Olympics .... check back for daily paintings highlighting the Olympic games. Fortunately I felt better today to finish this one.

Hi Leslie,
No I didn't paint at all while I was gone. I was strickly working then. I am just painting them now that I am finally a full-time painter!! I took these photos while staying on our friend's sailboat on Martha's Vineyard.

Leslie--such nice handling of edges and capturing the fold of the flag. I don't know how you do it --especially with a palette knife! Gorgeous..:)

Wow - this is gorgeous. You can feel it flapping in the breeze.

Fantastic! Love the one of Ohno and JC, too! Keep going - this is a new mine of great painting opportunities and you're making the most of them, in spite of the cold.
