Rio Olympics: For the Judges

Erika Fasana (Italy) took her final pose as the Italian opera music faded in the hall.  Fasana had just completed her floor exercise routine and held this pose as the judges looked on as though they were disgruntled.  I am not sure why they seemed like they had sour milk under their noses, but their scores reflected their apparent mood.  I thought that Fasana moved with grace, certainly one of the best dancers of the competition.  But then the tumbling is where the points are.

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!
