Richmond 2015 UCI Worlds: Looking for Richmond

Taylor Phinney, the USA's best hope for a medal in the Men's Elite Individual Time Trial, rode along the wide highway looking for the skyline of the city.  So far the only variation in the bucolic landscape was the tinges of red in the early fall foliage.  Phiney was the best place American on the day, but that place turned out to be 12th, not that his finial placing diminished the esteem of the provincial crowd.

This is a small original watercolor and ink painting that was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from www.richesonart.com.  In addition this painting is available along with two different sizes of prints in the Richmond Convention Center just a block away from the finish line of every race of the UCI World Road Racing Championships.  Just come look for me directly across from the awards podium.  Plus you can find a live stream of my painting the works at www.richmond.com were the paintings will soon be available for purchase.
