Water Launch (not available)
11 x 14 inches
oil on wood panel

This portrait shows a female rower climbing into the boat. I chose this pose and composition because it highlights an exquisite combination of strength and beauty within the athlete. Her rippling arm muscles and strong thighs reveal an unquestionable athletic competence. This painting is also a big step for me technically. It utilizes layering within oil paint that my previous works lack.
