Belgian Tango | Original Cycling Art
Dancing in the mud.
I’m very excited to present this original art painting. The work is six feet by four feet on canvas and commands a large wall space, over a sofa, fireplace or large wall in your office. It needs space to be enjoyed and should bring a smile to your face every day.
Belgian Tango seemed the right name — with flying feet, entangled arms and intense attitudes from my riders as they run though the muddy cross course. It’s a scrum on wheels, and somehow they always seem to get through the mess. I’m a big CX fan, hats off to the riders of that grueling sport.
Prints are available in the Open Editions prints, but the one of a kind painting, is the real show stopper.
Contact me with any questions or if you just want to talk about this painting.

Winter is hard for a bicycle rider in the midwest. But in my mind it’s endless summer rides with my Veloist friends.
On social media I see pictures of happy cyclists from around the globe flirting about hither and yon in their “winter kit”. Toe booties and tights with a wind vest does not a winter kit make. Try ice covered roads, frozen winds and temperatures well below zero. Let’s see that smile now.

Working on my watercolor skills getting ready to travel again, whenever that might be. Little vignettes from memories of France, I miss the amazing architecture. This little painting has no pen and ink, I’m looking for ways to just work with a small brush for line work. Early process.
In the gallery you can also see the process to get to the final.

Before I create any of my digital prints I do these types of concept drawings. Gino Bartali, nicknamed Gino the Pious and Ginettaccio, was a champion road cyclist. He was the most renowned Italian cyclist before the Second World War, having won the Giro d’Italia twice, in 1936 and 1937, and the Tour de France in 1938. The drawing is my original work.

Worn by the cycling legend Eddy Merckx, the famous FAEMA brand cycling jersey helped make this espresso machine manufacturing company a household name – even if you didn’t know what their name really stood for.
In 1945 Carlo Ernesto Valente opened a coffee machine factory in Milan: the “Factory Electro Mechanical and Associated Equipment” (“Fabbrica Apparecchiature Elettro Meccaniche e Affini” – FAEMA).
Now you know. This painting is one of a kind – prints are available but the original kicks ass, just like a great espresso.

Before I create any of my large paintings for prints I do these types of concept paintings. Like this is one. The final large painting will be based on this work so it’s part of the story each painting has. As a watercolor painting it has merit on its own and would look lovely framed in your home or office. It’s one of a kind.
This work was a concept study for a Tour of California Print. If you look close and you know him, the wave rider is my cycling mate Andrew.
