Tour of California Stage 1

8" x 10" Oil on panel.

While I was away from painting, I enjoyed working with friends at the Amgen Tour of California. I was lucky enough to be the timeboard driver this year. I thought I would work through a series of paintings based on the stages. Stage 1 gave us a beautiful day and ride from Nevada City to Sacramento. The script went according to plan with a breakaway that was caught. The field sprint ended with Mark Cavendish winning in his usual style.
