LBL: Getting the Pay Off
The title of the preceeding painting, "Risking It All" dictated the title of Jakob Fulgsang's (Astana) victory. He nearly lost his race, while taking big risks on the descent of the Cote de la Roche aux Faucons back into Liege. His victory is a clear proof that you have to risk failure inorder to succeed. And succeed he did with a solo ride across the finish line with only the race director's car behind him.
With this the final race of the spring racing season, I will take a break. I am going to have to forego painting my favorite of the Grand Tours, the Giro d'Italia. I just can't make the time committment right now. I do plan to paint the Tour of California instead. With luck, I will be able to paint both the women's and the men's races.
This is a small 4x6 inch original watercolor painting that is available though my website at www.greigleach.com, or you can simply follow the direct link at the end of this post. Since it is an original it is first come first served. The painting was created using Yarka St Petersburg watercolors from Richesonart.com. The work sells for $75 plus shipping. And yes, international shipping is available.
