Description This original is about special olympics, winning over the world. In 1992, I coordinated with Mickey Boutilier for their twenty-fifth year at the Maine Special olympics. The original is made up of ten different events, from basketball to downhill skiing. It was made to show that together we win. One of the reasons I chose to do this is that I had a sister who participated this event. I did this with .5mm pencil lead along with water color inks on lenox100 acid free paper.
