Commissioned Artwork and a Great Review of Book de Tour

Along with painting the peloton as it streaks around the world, I occasionally have the honor of doing a larger work for a specific cyclist.  This will be a surprise 50th birthday present for the gentleman leading this race through a tight corner of a downtown criterium.  I am told that he trains with and races against up and comers half his age.  Chapeau, my friend!

As I have mentioned in many of these posts over the last couple of months, I have taken my post of the 2014 Tour de France and created (and published them) in the book, Book de Tour - Art of the 101st Tour de France.  The attached link will give you the opportunity to read an excellent review that ran in the Canadian Cycling website, Pez Cycling News.
