Midnight Finish - Ironman Lake Placid
"Midnight Finish", 20x24, oil on linen.
This painting was commissioned by Mike Reilly (The Voice of Ironman) during 2019 Ironman Lake Placid.
I was able to observe Mike as he announced "(insert name) YOU ARE AN IRONMAN" to every single athlete who crossed the finish line.
After 11pm Mike jumps down onto the red Ironman carpet and personally interacts with the final finishers. The energy of the crowd is crazy!
