Rio Olympics: Fly High, Stick the Landing

Theoretically, this is Gymnastics 101, Fly High, Stick the Landing.  Somehow, I think there is a lot more to it then that.  But if you have these two things in your favor, you are well on your way to an award winning performance.  Madison Kocian (USA) had all of it in spades, but came up just shy of the Gold Medal on the Uneven Bars.  Kocian will take home a Silver Medal to go with her Gold from the Team All Around competition.

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!
