For years both my children were competitive swimmers, so when I came across these pieces of art I had to celebrate that time in their lives and mine. The hours at the pool, weekends at swim meets, driving to morning practice and watching both of them grow up around the water. I miss those times but I smile when I see swimming images and these caught my eye. Each completely different but singular images of swimmers remind me of the focus and dedication of these individuals and their sport.

I have done my best to credit the artists work and link you to their websites, but if you find something incorrect or do not wish to have me show your work in my inspiring me posts, please let me know I am happy to remove it.

Happy Friday everyone.
