Finish Line is In Sight! – 4″ x 6″ Watercolor and SharpieOnce the girls had the finish line in sight, there was no stopping them! Flying is clearly against the rules, so they were hoofing it around the track as fast as they could. The instant replay tapes are still being viewed, to see who actually won by a beak. I did this for http://www.illustrationfriday.com/ where the word is “sight”.
The photo I painted this from was by Mike Beckett at WetCanvas.

About John Lubbock
John Lubbock, the multifaceted British banker, statesman, and scientist, was responsible for the institution of England’s monthly Bank Holidays, sometimes referred to as St. Lubbock Days. He was born in 1834 in England. Growing up, he learned science from his father’s friend Charles Darwin. He coined the terms Paleolithic and Neolithic to denote the different Stone Ages, and he wrote the well-regarded books Prehistoric Times and Ants, Bees, and Wasps. He died in 1913.
