Golden Shot

Kaye with Tennis paintingHaving recently painted lots of sport images in connection with “Rackets” and “Real Tennis”, with the major UK Tennis tournaments approaching, it seemed fitting to turn my hand to painting some Tennis pieces.

Sadly hearing about the loss of Elena Baltacha, and inspired by the “Rally for Bally” I decided to paint a large acrylic canvas with the idea of celebrating her wonderful contribution to tennis.  My aim is to auction the painting and donate all proceeds from the sale jointly to the two charities supported by “Rally for Bally” – Royal Marsden Cancer Charity and The Elena Baltacha Academy of Tennis.

Having enjoyed painting this canvas, I went on to paint another which I hope to auction alongside the first.  Both paintings will be on display within the Members Clubhouse at Queens during the Aegon Championships.

Let’s hope I can raise funds for these great charities.
