Louisville "Our Old Kentucky Home" mixed media 26x30
"Our Old Kentucky Home" is a follow-up work to Louisville's premier painting, the "LouisaVillea.""Our Old Kentucky Home" honors Louisville's significance in the world community and features the city's prominence in sports on the national stage. The gray racehorse in the picture is a Louisville championship thoroughbred named General Quarters. Owned by Louisvillian Tom McCarthy, General Quarters was a 2009 Kentucky Derby contender. Louisville's championship thoroughbred is also a contributing artist to this work. By knocking over buckets of paint with his nose, General Quarters produced the abstract splash of color behind the horse and jockey.
