I may never finish a marathon, or even a half, but for me, the triumph is in getting out and doing it. That’s the passion and energy I want to capture in this series.
All of the paintings are based on photos that I take at various races that I attend…sometimes as a runner, sometimes just to watch. None of them is any person in particular, but an essence of the runner. Someone in which we can all see ourselves.
For the most part, the form of the runner is fairly accurate, but what I really want to capture is the energy…that dynamic place where will meets ability and becomes something amazing!
