I like your work. Now, if you can sell your art for the same prices as Mr. Nieman, that would be brilliant .

Do you sell your bike paintings to poor college students? Want to PM me with a price for some pre-done stuff, or some custom stuff?

My apartment walls are bare. Well, except for a research poster I did last semester. But who the hell thinks that is art?

I love these paintings! If you're interested in selling, I might be interested in buying.

I agree with everyone else. Beautiful work and I can totally picture having one hung up in my place. Please do let me know if you intend to sell them.

I'm generally not a fan of the impressionist style, but it seems appropriate for capturing the feel of cycle racing. Very nice.

Ok I know you're not painting little red Xs.

I can't see them - do you have a site?

wow,thanks everyone for your kind words,interest and enthusiasm...
it feels good in my tummy!
i've pm'd everyone...i hope,
if not you can get me here,
rijbema@hotmail.com
and here www.paintingletour.blogspot.com

i'm trying to paint a stage a day,no promises though,as life has got an habit of getting in the way,i'm sure you know what i mean.
but if the riders can sit on the bike for more than 4 hours each day,i should be able to do a painting a day,especially with you lot cheering me on!
now i need a massage...

willing to bet you would do a brisk business selling lithographs (if you so desired) to the tifosi at a stage
depart/finish/classic mountain stage roadside. likely enough to pay your way to the tour(s) every year-and more.
