I was recently contacted by Iain Vellacott, a wonderful artist living in the south west of France letting me know of his new website devoted to the master Spanish artist Joaquin Sorolla. Check out his site by clicking Sorolla Paintings. There's even a section devoted to his quotes.

A recent commission
I recently finished this commission of a cycling team making their way on a road in Death Valley toward Dante's View. The painting will be auctioned off to raise money for the team who are called "Tieni Doro" (it is a phrase shouted by cycling fans in Italy to encourage their favorite riders... it basically means "stay strong").
If you want to see a master of cycling paintings (as well as race cars and beautiful countryside paintings), you have to check out the work of Rob Ijbema at his blog, Painting le Tour. Rob's paintings really capture the sense of speed and the excitement of the race.
