Design….Eiffel Tower


Eiffel Pop Art

Just completed a spray, hand painted Eiffel Tower for a house present. 48″ x 48″ on thick canvass and textured with silver underlay.

“Named after its designer, engineer Gustave Eiffel, the Eiffel Tower is the tallest building in Paris. More than 200,000,000 people have visited the tower since its construction in 1889, including 6,719,200 in 2006, making it the most visited paid monument in the world. Including the 24 m (79 ft) antenna, the structure is 324 m (1,063 ft) high (since 2000), which is equivalent to about 81 levels in a conventional building.” –, UK version

Bikes….Dragon Ride



Woah!  Sunday I managed to complete the Dragon Ride cyclosportive.  It is a circular, 190km non competitive road cycle challenge ride over the beautiful hills and valleys of South Wales – around 3000m of climbing, the route takes in the classic Milk Race/Tour of Britain climbs of the Bwlch, Rhigos and Brecon Beacons mountain roads.

Needless to say it was quite hard – 2nd route up Bwlch from Afan was particularly long, arduous and challenging.  Needless to say I managed to grin every time for the camera – more of pain than elation! Recommended for next year if you fancy wrecking your knees and taking on one or two Pro’s who use it as a training ride.
