    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'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.
