Derby Time!

Happy Derby Day! My grandfather was a renowned sports artist and in his spare time enjoyed painting thoroughbreds. Watching the Triple Crown races always reminds me of his astounding work. Anyone headed to the track? I hope to cross the Kentucky Derby off my bucket list in the next couple of years!

  6. Stunning paintings! I would also like to go to the Derby in the next couple of years. We have family in Lexington and they are all going but we had too many obligations this year and couldn't make the trip. Have a great weekend!
