Original image size: 22" x 30"
Framed to size: 32" x 40"

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. To be victorious in Olympic Super-G and slalom racing is the ultimate goal. The focus in this watercolour 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.
I welcome your inquiry into the availability and price of this original watercolor painting or your inquiry into commissioning an original action winter sports painting or wall mural of your favorite athlete.
