Rio Olympics: Traffic Jam

After the racers of the 4x400 relay complete their first 400 and the first baton pass, they leave their lanes and race as they have room.  That makes for a rather confusing second and third baton passes.  Each of the teams will clump together, hoping to be seen by their teammates as they approach at full speed.  Tonight all of the passes went smoothly in the qualifying races.  Three out of these four teams qualified for the final, Jamaica, Botswana and the United States.  Trinidad and Tabago in red, didn't make it through.

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!
