The Mountains are calling and so is the Giro

It’s May… which means it’s Giro d’Italia time. This iconic race around Italy means we get to watch the drama of cycling unfold over three weeks while cyclists race their hearts out through gorgeous Italian landscapes. And since we’re well into the race, it means we’re hitting the mountains. And you know I’m obsessed with mountains – especially Italian ones.

Whenever it’s Giro time I think back to my days guiding bicycle tours in the Italian Alps.

In honor of the Giro and mountains here are some of my favorite mountain paintings available.
These are part of a collection inspired by my time guiding cyclists in the Dolomites, one of my favorites spots in the world. By playing with color and brush marks, I am sharing what it FEELS like up there. Bright hot sun, sharp cold air, big skies, vast sweeping green lush hills, and big jagged rock… The effort of making it up a climb and the elation of flying downhill afterward… These paintings bring this energy into your space.
