The Calm Before the Race, Giclee canvas prints
I did this painting as a commission. The buyers wanted me to show the high fashion of the Kentucky Derby Crowd at the Santa Anita racetrack in Arcadia, CA. While painting the crowd along the fence in front of the building I decided to have a little fun and included some strange attendees, notably Frankenstein's monster, Count Dracula, a green witch, Abe Lincoln, Waldo of Where's Waldo fame, and Darth Vader. They can just be made out if you use the magnifier and start at the just above the saddle cloth on the #1 horse and scan right.
These can also be purchases in Champions Gift Shop at Santa Anita Park.
