Large Painting of a Marathon Runner

One of my neighbors, who has admired my cow paintings for some time, commissioned me to paint a series of three large paintings…of athletes! Welcome to me stepping outside of my comfort zone! It took me a while to get to a place where I felt good about where the painting was going. I painted over it at least five times! I changed the size and perspective of the figure at least 3 times. In the end, I feel like I was able to make my painting stye work with this subject…now I just need to paint two more, a swimmer and a cyclist. Stay tuned!

  1. Hi David,
    Thank you for your interest. I don’t really want to release a high-res photo of this, but I am considering having high quality giclee prints made of this painting that I can sell as signed/numbered editions. Would you be interested that? Alternately, I can order a print on canvas for you. Let me know.
