Rio Olympics: Advantage Sweden

Sweden and Brazil played 120 minutes without a goal.  And yet, it was an incredibly exciting game. So it came down to penalty kicks to decide who would play in the Gold Medal Match and who would play in the Bronze.  When Sweden blocked a goal, so did Brazil, until the final of the five kicks.  Sweden made theirs, Brazil did not.  So Sweden will face Germany to determine who will win the Gold.  I guess Sweden putting the USA women, and defending four time Gold medalist out is a little easier to take, now.

This is a small watercolors and ink painting measuring just 4"x6" and was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from www.richesonart.com.  This painting and all of my Olympics artwork will be available through my artist website at www.greigleach.com.  To purchase this particular painting just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  Remember this is an original work of art, so once it has been sold, it is gone.  Don't delay buy it now!
