After putting a little more time in on my self portrait, I felt moved by the Olympic Spirit. This is in Honor of all Olympians and our friends in Canada. Golden Open on 14 x 18 Canvas Board. C & Cs welcome.

Re: Vancouver 2010

As I Watched Bi-athletes skiing and shooting through soupy weather... I decided to apply a pearl acrylic glaze usually applied to walls over all but the leaf and inner circles. Nice effect in real life.

Wonderful painting! I love the energy! I was in downtown Vancouver yesterday, it was awesome seeing the flame and all the people in such high spirts also the colour red (for CANADA) everywhere.

Thank you for the painting.
