A Sentimental Journey



This beautiful oil painting with vibrant hues, depicts the historic Saratoga paddock. In this scene the thoroughbreds with their jockeys mounted are led around the paddock as a magnificent display for all to see. Look closely and you will notice the ghost like figures of a by gone era mingling with the present.

 The doorway to history and memories is in discovering the paddock at Saratoga. As seemingly, the world turns around the other way and rests itself on times past. Where a glimpse upward at the noble, old trees makes one reminisce about the grand athletes that long ago paraded by. And as these giant spectators have quietly watched, the year has grown a little older. Newer, lesser-known explorers are now hoping that they too will find the fountain and taste the wine...that is Saratoga.
