Maillot Jaune Sunflower

One of the most iconic images associated with The Tour de France is the sunflower.

Every year without fail we see photos of the peloton rolling past vast open fields of bright yellow sunflowers. This painting is my version of that image where I’ve made the sunflower from the famous “maillot jaune”, the yellow jersey of the TdF leader.

In my little world this is how things should always be.

You can also see some images of the work in progress if you look at the image gallery.

This painting will be carefully packaged and tracked to be sure you receive it in perfect condition for you to display proudly.

Don “Quixote” Contador!

The race to win the Tour de France has already begun and we’re still five months out. What teams will put the winning combination together? Which GC contender will rise to the occasion?

This painting is my view of what many believe to be a fantasy – will Alberto Contador conquer the TdF this year? Will his faithful team show him the way to glory and will he have what it takes to make the impossible happen again? Or is he just tilting at windmills and chasing dreams that will never come true?

That’s the beauty of the Tour de France, never count anyone out, especially the dreamers and believers!

Coppi on the Izoard | Original Cycling Art
Coppi on the Izoard | Original Cycling Art

Fausto Coppi 1949.

 

History has it that on his 35th birthday, Gino Bartali made a pact with Fausto Coppi — “Let me have today, and the Tour is yours.”

Truth or fiction, the deals that went down between the heads of state is just one of the things that makes the history of the Tour de France so fascinating.

This is my take on Coppi as the moto follows him up the Izoard in 1949. Who will take the Izoard this year when the Tour visits again? I can’t wait to find out, and I’ll be there!

Romain Bardet.

It’s been years since France has had a real contender for the Yellow Jersey at the Tour de France — will this be the year of Romain Bardet? The hopes of a new generation of cycling fans ride squarely on his frail shoulders — only time will tell us how this story ends.

My drawing is meant to capture the mood of anticipation for our hero’s arrival. We’ve all felt this at some point, it’s what I love about drawing – sharing human moments.

The road less traveled.

They say a lot of different things about the road less traveled. I say it’s littered with potholes and it’s worth your time to take it now and again.

I spend a lot of time in the winter months riding alone and finding my way around the ugly roads in Wisconsin and Illinois. Ugly because of their condition but not their locations. Many of the worst roads I ride are the most interesting and visually stimulating if not physically also. Picking my way around holes, rocks and downed trees makes my slow winter rides all that much better.

Now go get lost, it’s fun.

Hometown support for Trek.

I live just a couple of hours drive from Trek HQ in Waterloo, WI and I must admit the local support for the Trek-Segafredo Cycling Team is pretty obvious.

So maybe I may exaggerate a wee little bit here, but having a world-class company and team like Trek in the neighborhood is very exciting for most of us locals.

The original idea for this drawing came from an idea I call “Jersey Cows” — That is I think it would be fun to make an entire peloton of “Jersey Cows”. Until I get around to it, this one will have to live on it’s own.

My favorite part of this drawing is actually the Bontrager shoes, it’s all about the details.

Tour de France Saint Michel Cycling Art Print
Tour de France Saint Michel Cycling Art Print

Mont Saint Michel

This year the 2016 Tour de France will start in the shadow of Mont Saint Michel as it travels around the country for the month of July. This dramatic backdrop has been host to other Tour race days and no doubt will offer us breathtaking vistas of the peloton racing away from this historic location.

My vintage flavored drawing of this poster uses the Red, White and Blue of the French flag along with the “Maillot Jaune” – Yellow Jersey. Complete with goggles, a spare tire and of course a handlebar mustache our cyclist represents the romantic era of the Tour de France classic days of cycling.

This cycling art print comes in three sizes on high quality watercolor paper and will be rolled and shipped to you ready for framing.
