TOP OF THE STRETCH

 
 
My how time flys and over 8,000 viewers to my blog,  I was shocked to see when I posted last! So much has happened and I've decided to post one of my pieces that was still in the making that I touched up and textured. I took the original photo on my first trip to the races at Santa Anita Race Track and what caught my eye was the man in the back with his hand on his head as if he had lost on a big bet while the sign above him explained it all. Pictures that tell a story make it so interesting to create art out of and draw me back into finding just the right brushes to work with and to want to start dipping them back into my digital art world that I love getting lost in. A world of imagination that's timeless.

Does make a person wonder by observing people at times. Nice work!

Great to hear for you. As always it's out of this world on your painting

Nice Job! you can feel the emotion in this picture, as you stated. Having been raised by parents who owned/raced thoroughbreds and going to the track frequently, I have seen some of these sad expressions. Too familiar!
