Rio Olympics: For the Love of It

This is one of the Olympic stories that truly warms my heart.  Oksana Chusovitina (Uzbekistan) is old enough to be the mother of every woman she is competing against.  Okay, that might be an exaggeration, but she is 41 years old and still competing at an elite level.  When asked, she says she just loves gymnastics.  She hasn't ruled out going to Toyko in 2020.  She hasn't medal since 2004, but that hasn't deterred her from coming back over and over.

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!
