Rio Olympics: Bending Grace

My wife has three favorite events in the Summer Olympics, the synchronized swimmers, the women's gymnastics, and this, the rhythmic gymnastics.  Or as she calls it the ribbon dancers.  Tonight was the first half of the competition featuring routines with the ring and the ball.  Salome Pazhava (Georgia) did a most elegant routine with her color coordinated ball.  It seems to me that these women are even more flexible than the artistic gymnasts.  But then these ladies will not be doing any double back flips.

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!
