"Alexandra the Great"
At my Easel...
(Three views of my latest work)
This is my 11th year photographing the Oaks & Derby. Throughout the years, I usually use my reference material to portray the Derby champion but this year it will be the great Rachel Alexandra. Her performance in The Oaks was totally awesome. My oil painting, "Alexandra the Great", captures her destroying her six rivals by 20 lengths.
On to the Preakness, let's see what she could do to the boys...

As my teacher use to say:
Drawing is a series of adjustments.
