Giro, Stage 19: Meanwhile...

The commentators, the cameras, perhaps even the fans, barely noticed the brilliant solo victory by Mikel Landa (Sky).  With his mountain top stage win, he has made the Maglia Azzurro his own.  Like the Maglia Ciclamino, he just has to finish the next two stages to claim the final King of the Mountains title in Milan on Sunday.  I guess everyone could be forgiven for paying more attention to the wide open general classification happen ten minutes down the road.

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  This painting and all of my Olympics artwork will be available through my artist website at  To purchase this particular painting just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  It is only $75 USD and international shipping is available.

With the racing of the 100th Giro d'Italia, I am crowd funding my third cycling art book through Kickstarter.  I could use your support in helping this book get made, please consider backing the project here:  This will be just one of the hundred plus paintings that will be included. With Kickstarter, if there is not a 100% funded, no one is charged a dime, and the project recieves 0% funding.
