This Oil painting of a thoroughbred race, started as a challenge in the art group Paard Verzameld, that Lena is a part of. The artists were given a. reference photo of Kathy Russel and challenged to make their own take of it. This resulted in this oil paining made mainly with knife.
Lena also made a second painting of the subject, Run-in 8 .
