Rio Olympics: Running with Africa

The American, Galen Rupp was the only non African runner at the business end of the Men's Marathon.  As the group dropped runner after runner, the neophyte found himself in the company of a very elite group that was down to the two Ethiopians, Berhanu and Lilesa and the Kenyan, Eluid Kipchoge.  The quartet was roughly twenty miles in, now the real racing can begin.

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!
