Rio Olympics: Home Team Girl

Brazil did well to get one of their gymnasts into the Women's All Around competition.  Rebeca Andrade (Brazil) was naturally a crowd favorite.  Her floor exercise was spot on, rivaling those of most of the medal winners, but not her scores.  The patriotic crowd loudly boo-ed the score as it played across the stadium.  It must have rattle the next gymnast waiting to start her routine.  Her dance elements reminded me of the great Josephine Baker (although she was never a gymnast).

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  This painting and all of my Olympics artwork will be available through my artist website at  To purchase this particular painting just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
