Cyclist Fausto Coppi

This is a commssioned painting for a cycling enthusiast. Fausto Coppi was a renowned competitor in the Tour de France in the 1950's and this depicts him way ahead of the competition in the mountains. He sadly died aged only 40 after catching malaria. Many consider him to be the greatest cyclist of all time.

Another commission completed

I have just completed another commission for a client, to be a special birthday present, I can't post the image here yet, just in case it spoils the suprise, socheck out my website later on and look under commssions.

I now have to start another commission, this time a painting of Fausto Coppi, a renowned cyclist from the 1950's

On the domestic front the builders have now completed the brickwork for the new conservatory, it will be a nice replacement for the old wooden construction that I built many years ago, but the garden looks like a battlefield.

A visit to the Past

I have been having a bit of a tidy on my hard drive and came across some of my earlier paintings, this is one of those early works and I may revisit this theme again when I have a moment. It is called after the rain which is perhaps somewhat appropriate after the recent floods that some people have had to endure.

A garden visitor

The warm sunshine that now that Summer has finally made an appearance brought this visitor to my garden a couple of days ago. I tried to capture him in flight but it was next to impossible, I did get some very 'interesting' shots though!! Any way I had to settle for this. I'm told it is a 'Common Hawker'
