Giro, Stage 5: Everybody Here?

With just over ten kilometers left to race, it was Bora-Hansgrohe that took control of the peloton.  I wasn't able to catch the name of who was looking over his shoulder to make sure the whole team was on his wheel.  As the riders approach the finale, it seems everyone is looking around, to find their men, to check out where their rivals are, or to see if they have opened a gap on the peloton.  With the speed of the pack, they had little opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the scenery in Messina, perhaps they will have a chance before heading to the main land tomorrow.

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 start of the Giro d'Italia, I am crowd funding my third cycling art book through Kickstarter.  I could use your support in making this book get made, please consider supporting the project here:  This will be just one of the hundred plus paintings that will be included.
