Is V for Victory? Rio143
Why yes it is! Since I paint these works as close to live as possible, I don't know the results when I create (and title) the work. So although I was sure that Oleg Vernyayev"s (Ukraine) routine was worthy of a Gold Medal, I didn't know the score when this was done. To be sure one can never count on what the judges will see. But in the end, it was as good to them as it was to me.
