the jockey club


8 x 16, oil on canvas
"Horses and jockeys mature earlier than people -
 which is why horses are admitted to race tracks at the age of two,
 and jockeys before they are old enough to shave."

This is wonderful! I love the angle, seeing the jockey from the back. I like the reflections on his clothing, where you have the shadows and the sunlight. This painting is the same size as Mr. Withers... did you plan for them to hang side by side? That would be awesome!
