Hamilton artist is halfway around the bay

If Dylan Swan was competing in the Around the Bay race, he'd be about four years off the winning pace, well behind the pack. But that's OK. He's not running the race, he's painting it.

Swan's goal is to have one painting depicting each kilometre of the annual Hamilton road race, including the start and the finish line, in time for its 125th anniversary next year.

That's 31 paintings in all. He hopes to have them all done by the end of the year so they can go on display in March 2019, as part of a special exhibition at the Art Gallery of Hamilton.
