After The 7th Race by Davis W. Morton

AFTER THE SEVENTH RACE  / 1998 / oil on canvas / 24" x 34"... Read a painting comment below...

      After the Seventh race all four of these men realize they have had a bad day at the track.  For me one scenario they could represent would be some of the different ways we all react to failure.  The man in the pink shirt seems to be on the brink of arguing with fate, as though he's saying, "There must be some mistake."  Being realistic, the two men in the center are trying to find out where they went wrong so they can fix it next time, and the man on the end has completely given up because he has lost it all.
