23 – Major Taylor

majortaylorI know, I know, I’m supposed to be painting faces, but if I didn’t show this guy on a bicycle, you wouldn’t know who he is. Major Taylor was one of the best cyclists that ever lived. He was born in 1878 and died in 1932. He broke numerous world records and broke the color barrier to even be able to compete in the first place. Today there are numerous organizations using his name that promote cycling as a sport to underprivileged and children of color. And lest you think the color barrier is gone, it is not. It’s still harder for black cyclists to get anywhere in the sport.

This painting is for sale, at the amazing low price of $50.00. It measures 6″ x 6″
