The Great Race by Raymond Burks

Alexie asked me to post this painting by my son, Raymond because he really likes it & he found it to be freeing. It is presently listed on e-bay & has a bid on it. He (Raymond) is very excited about the amount of hits on the site.  Alexie(an avid art collector) has been very supportive of the Burks family & our art. So I am grateful he wanted his fans to take a look at this. 

Inspired by Harlem Renassaince artist Jacob Lawrence's The Runner, Raymond Burks (offspring of artist Anthony Burks Sr & artist/author Trina Slade-Burks) created the Great Race. The image was created for sorority Delta Sigma Theta's Salute to the Harlem Renasaince in 2009.

Raymond has sold other art. He raised money for his school St. Juliana back in 2008 selling his first piece of art work. He has also exhibited art at the Norton Museum of Art in 2009.

Raymond will be attending Suncoast Community High School in the fall, which ranked #7 in the country & #1 in the State of Florida.
