Rio Olympics: A Balanced Beamer

Back to using puns for titles.  According to the NBC announcers, Aly Raisman's (USA) coach refers to her as a "beamer" so the title almost wrote itself.  This is her, the captain of the USA Women's Gymnastics team up on the balance beam.  Raisman and her teammates finished the balance beam with a strong lead in the team competition.  It has been a pleasure to watch such talented gymnasts also having so much fun competing.

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  This painting and all of my Olympics artwork will be available through my artist website at  To purchase this particular painting just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
