In this Fall Series of Cycling Art Paintings I’ve tried to capture some of what I see, and more importantly how I feel. I take rides almost every day and I’m always inspired by the nature I’m riding in. The colors of fall, the low light of the early sun – just stunning most days. Bright contrasting colors screaming at me or deep rich earthy tones, wet, muted values of color as the days get shorter and colder.
It won’t be long before I’m working on a winter series, so enjoy these last days of warmth and wonder.

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.

Before I create any of my digital prints I do these types of concept drawings. This one was for Fabian Cancellara the Swiss rider so well know for his one day wins, Paris-Roubaix and strong support for his teams. “Spartacus” was one of a kind, like this drawing. The drawing is my original work.
