the turn 30" x 22"
water color monoprint
This is a drawing from a photo taken of my father in approximately 1944 while running track for the El Paso High School Fighting Tigers. In 2007 I used this photo for the graphics on an invitation for my Dad's 80th birthday party. This year he will make the turn for his 90th.
This photo also gave me the idea to make my photo finish sculpture. In this photo he is obviously not at the finish of a race. I have played with 3 different versions and techniques to get the right effect.
