Just as January really starts to bite and feels like SUCH a long month, the Mallorca Challenge cycle race pops up over the last weekend and brightens the new year, heralding a new cycling season and the promise of Spring.
This year’s race takes place over five days for the first time but last year’s was moved to May because of the continuing Covid-19 crisis. January was the longest of all last year!
The series of races coming in May was still a treat and here are two paintings I made from the TV coverage, in the countryside around Andratx. The pictures were made together – as you can see from the colours – the olives in the title could easily refer to the colour of my paint, as well as the trees themselves. I think this is the UAE team because of the flashes of red but don’t take my word and please feel free to correct me!
I like them together as a pair – and I am showing them here arranged horizontally but they look good stacked vertically too – Ideal for one of those awkward spaces! What do you think?
Meanwhile, this year’s series is on just now, so I am looking forward to sharing some new paintings with you soon – Have a great weekend!
Just remember, it’s nearly February! Spring on its way 🙂
