Hey Mate!...I'm no bike enthusiast (except that I own one... and it lives in the darkness the basement)... but both your car and "Tour" pieces speak loudly... and with authenticity of your own passion for both in the energy ... flare and sense of movement in all of the pieces that you translate in your wonderful action-packed images!! A gem!

Good Painting!... and Touring!
Happy Summer Rob!
Warmest regards,
Bruce

I always like the mountain stages and this really has that atmosphere - suggesting the long steady climb up to the top.

You bring the event to life with your vibrant brush work and your collection of tour images is a wonderful series that is deserving of the widest circulation.
