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.

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.

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.

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.

You’ve heard of the Koppenberg, the famous cobbled climb Belgium. Well KinderKoppen is slang for the cobbles meaning – “children’s heads”. Or when I was there, I was told “baby’s heads”. Either way riding on them is not for kids.

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.
