Rio Olympics: Calm Down

I seem to remember that in my youth the Men's Marathon's finish signified the start of the closing ceremonies.  That could just be a hazy memory of youth, but it is one of the very last events of the Summer Olympics.  With the pace a little slower than was expected for the early kilometers, the pack was still rather large ten kilometers in.  On the front of the crowd, Eluid Kipchoge (Kenya) seemed to be gesturing for L.Berhanu (Ethiopia) and Galen Rupp (USA) to slow it down. Given the Kenyans prowess in this event, one would think he would want the pace to be as high as possible.

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!
