Steilacoom Cyclocross Run-up
8" x 10" Oil on mounted canvas.!-->
I was not completely satisfied with the previous cyclocross painting. I wanted to create one that showed the speed and movement of the racing. I used some softer edges and more blurring to get the impression. The subject here is a Kona racer right at the beginning of the huge run-up at Fort Steilacoom Park. He is shouldering his bike to attack the 200 meter gully that rises up from the shady path by a small lake.
