Artist's Description

The triple challenge of man against man, man against the elements and man against himself trying to beat a personal record, is offered in Alpine (or downhill) competitive skiing action. Super giant slalom or Super-G is an Alpine skiing discipline. Along with the faster downhill it is regarded as a "speed" event, in contrast to the technical events giant slalom and slalom. To be victorious in Olympic Super-G and slalom racing is the ultimate goal. The focus in this watercolor painting is on the fervent skier as he carves the mountain with his edges to make tight turns - every 1/100th of a second counts. Inquire about the commission of your own original sports action painting in watercolor, oil or acrylic paint or as a sports wall mural. I am approachable! Thank you to the following groups for featuring my painting. I am honored!
