Rio Olympics: Chasing the Others

It upsets me to look at riders with so little covering their skin.  I won't even ride without gloves, I prefer to keep my skin on my body and not leaving it on the road.  Sara True (USA) and Kristen Sweetland (Canada) were trying to catch back on to the leading peloton.  True was having a bit of trouble with the one short steep climb on the course, or perhaps it was the equally steep descent.  True eventually withdrew from the race with horrible quad cramps.  I have been there, I know there is simply nothing she could do to continue, try as she might.  A rough way to end your Olympic dreams.

This is a small watercolors and ink painting measuring just 4"x6" and was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from www.richesonart.com.  This painting and all of my Olympics artwork will be available through my artist website at www.greigleach.com.  To purchase this particular painting just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  Remember this is an original work of art, so once it has been sold, it is gone.  Don't delay buy it now!
