The painting

When first painted the cyclist was wearing a white T shirt, in consideration of the achievement that was changed to a yellow jersey…

Painting Inspired by the Artists son.

The Vendee Forest basks behind low sand dunes and beautiful sandy beaches.

The Vendee trail runs mostly through sweet scented pine forests, designed for walkers, hikers and cyclists follows the Atlantic Ocean coast of France South from the river Loire.

Gordon Frickers has painted many times in the Vendee and on L’isle de Nourmoutier a region blessed by a warm climate (usually over 20 C from mid May) good food and healthy air. This painting resulted from a family holiday.

For weeks his 7 year old son had been trying to ride a bicycle in the family’s back garden and local park.

On a bike hired at St Jean de Monts the lad suddenly mastered the technique, took off in a flurry of pounding knees and was not see again for half an hour while be busied himself with exploring his new freedom.
