As an update to the previous post, these are the three images I selected to send to the exhibition in New York. The show is Oct. 26 at Belmont Park. If you are near the area, stop by!
These paintings relate to horse racing through the donning of exuberant hats on race day. This is something that is most often practiced in Kentucky and in the UK. I think it's a lovely tradition, and it afforded me the opportunity to continue working with the figure.
As far as these images go, I am not completely satisfied. I hope they are well received in the show, but I am going to continue working with a similar theme until I am more comfortable with the finished product. The painting I am working on is pictured below. I still have a lot to do on this image, but you can get an idea for how my thoughts are flowing from image to image.
