I’m on vacation this week so I’m getting a lot of oil painting in.  Here’s my latest, depicting a racing trotter.  I used to watch the trotters when I was a kid in Evansville, Indiana.  There was a nice trotter track just across the Ohio River in Henderson, Kentucky, where I’d go from time to time.  There was also Thoroughbred racing nearby at James C. Ellis Park.  My goal with this one was to impart a sense of movement.  I didn’t want a racing trotter to just sit there!
