One-handed Frog

8"x10" Oil on Gessoed Panel
with Palette Knife

Not many people know that jumping rope is an international sport. My older daughter started competitive jump rope when she was in elementary school. Today's painting is from a photograph of her at age 11 performing a trick called the "One-handed Frog"  at the Nationals competition. Her goal is to become a All-Star. I think she is well on her way towards that goal.

See what competitive jump rope looks like by viewing this VIDEO.

  1. I didn't know, at that video is really impressive!
    And so is your painting - there's so much energy and movement in there, it really is a fitting 'portrait' of this sport!
