Blue Greyhound Racing - Watercolor on Canvas Effect Wall Art Print

Regular price $ 99.99

This 'Blue Greyhound Racing Watercolor on Canvas Effect Wall Art Print' sees a magnificent blue greyhound really enjoying itself and playing full-out.

Racing dogs are amazing. They are a common sight in tracks in the UK, but less so in the United States, where racing only now continues in tracks in West Virginia, Arkansas, Alabama, Iowa and Arizona (it used to be common in the USA, where there were over 60 tracks across 19 states in the early 1990s, but that is now down to those five states following an amendment being passed in 2018 to phase out greyhound racing by 2020 in Florida).

One thing that many people don't realise however is what good pets the breed make!

They are lovely dogs to have around. Much calmer and gentler then you might imagine. They don't have the aggressive tendencies of some other breeds of dog (though probably best not to also have a guinea pig or rabbit as a pet!), and they make great companion dogs.

One big myth is that they need enormous amounts of exercise. In fact, they are quite happy with the same longish, but not crazy long, walk that you would give most other big breeds of dog, and as long as you have a bit of a garden for them to roam around in, they are likely to be very happy. In fact, the breed is actually quite content to have lots of naps and really take things easy most of the time, so they are quite a low-key house guest.

(Which sort of makes sense when you think that an animal like a Cheetah for example, may run incredibly fast in short bursts, but actually is reckoned to sleep 12 hours of every day!)

But boy, when they want to, they really can run!

In this piece of artwork you can see a Blue Greyhound on a stretch of sand racing around, having fun. He's actually chasing after a blue ball on a beach, so rabbits can sleep well at night! (This is a canvas wrap so you'll be able to see it on the right-hand side when you get this picture :-)) It's like an 'easter egg' in a game that only you will know is there!)

Clearly he has been running around, enjoying himself. Really putting the pedal to the mettle and going flat-out with high-paced, unrestrained, reckless abandon, simply because he can.

And, let's face it, if I could run like that, then I would as well. You can see the joy on his face.  The intensity showing in his face of doing what he is good at and doing it full-on. The sand is being kicked up, and all the sinews of his body are flexing.

This piece of artwork is presented in a watercolor on canvas type effect (though, to be clear, this is a print), so you can really feel the fluidity of the movement of the dog, and a real-sense of the joy he is experiencing from playing and being himself.

To get their speed in perspective, consider that a Cheetah (which is the fastest land-animal) is reckoned to travel at between 68 and 75 mph at it's fastest. 

While a greyhound, which is the fastest dog in the world, can reach speeds of up to around 45 miles per hour.  (That is the equivalent of Usain Bolt running the 100 meters in 5.33 seconds.)

THAT IS FAST!

So, whether you love the breed, love speed, or just enjoy looking at an animal really expressing itself, clearly having fun and living it's full potential, then I hope you will enjoy having this canvas on your walls.
