The Final Sprint (oil painting on canvas)
Inspired by… Alexander von Wagner's The Chariot Race, 1898
“The artist has captured the speed and excitement of the event. Above the sound of the frightened horses, with their flared nostrils, wild eyes and chariots, I can hear the crowds cheering the charioteers in their frantic race. I have tried to reproduce von Wagner’s expression of motion and excitement of the race in a modern and local setting.
Adult education gave me the basis, many years ago, for a long and successful engineering career in the Aircraft Industry. Having retired in 2004 I hope that Adult education will enable me to have a long and active retirement.”
