I had planned on doing a painting of Justify if he won the Triple Crown, but when I saw Steve Heuertz's photograph of his last stride coming to the wire, I just had to get started on the painting even before the Belmont was run. Even if he hadn't won the Belmont, he was still a great horse and deserved to be immortalized on canvas.
The Preakness was run on a very sloppy track and it was very foggy. I dulled the background, the people, and the rival horses, and I painted Justify as if the sun was shining to make him really stand out on the canvas.
I've done editions of signed and numbered canvas prints in four sizes.
12 x 16" 100 prints
16 x 20" 50 prints
18 x 24" 30 prints (this is the size of the original painting)
24 x 30" 20 prints
