Canadian Olympic Swimmer, Alex Bauman on Podium by Susan R. Makin.
Susan Makin, whose picture of Olympic Skater, Nathalie Lambert (right side of blog), and her painting of former Olympic swimmer, Alex Bauman, announces that she is planning on donating the procedes of these work to the Haitian Earthquake Relief Fund.
Makin's view of Bauman, effectively captures the spirit of the situation when Bauman wins his Gold metal and enters that glorious 'other worldly' state and drifts away into a state of euphoria.
