The Forests of the Tour de France

Even though the Tour de France has ended, images from the race are still strong in my mind. Here's an abstract watercolor I painted yesterday, of the yellow jersey-wearer speeding through those beautiful forests of France...

The Tour's mountain stages get the most attention, and deservedly so ... they're spectacular. But I love it when the peloton weaves its way through those shadowy pine forests. It's like shining a kaleidoscope of color on those dark, mysterious places...


  1. Jason, I didn't know you painted !! You are full of surprises. Your intro to the TdF was a big help. Thanks so much.

  2. I love all of the bike banter. What a great book this is going to make, (wink wink, nudge nudge!) And that excellent painting looks as good a book cover as any I have seen, (and most of the books I read have LOTS of picture:).
