Amgen ToC, Stage 1: Starting Off the Week
Normally, I like to spend May painting the Giro d'Italia, but I am a little too busy with mutliple projects to devote three weeks to one of the great Grand Tours. So I am delighted to be able to focus my attention on the Amgen Tour of California, the biggest professional cycling event in the North America. Despite the surity of a sprint finish on the flat roads around Sacramento, these four decided to give a break away a try. Laurens De Vreese (Astana), Charles Planet (Team Novo Nordisk), Michael Schar (CCC) and Tyler Stites (Team USA) build a lead of nearly two minutes, however after the first intermediate sprint the group began to fall apart.
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.
