Giro Day Thirteen: Pushing Hard with Wiggins Off the Back

With Bradley Wiggins off the back the teams of the other contenders came to the front of the peleton and push the pace up, trying to put as much time between themselves and the 2012 Tour de France winner.  Apparently, Wiggins has said that he has a cold that has been affecting his performance in the race.  Today, he lost another three minutes to the Maglia Rosa wearer, Vicente Nibali.  Ryder Hesjedal, the winner of the 2012 Giro isn't faring much better.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard and like all of the other works in this series, was created using cake watercolors, brushes and papers from www.richesonart.com  In addition, this work is available for sale on my artist website.  Just follow the direct link at the end of this post, but hurry, you wouldn't want someone else to get your painting.
