Rosemary Bike

Still thinking of the great time we had in Rosemary last weekend. I shot a quick shot of my friend Kim's bike as she met us at the Town Hall to help us out (like she does at the drop of a hat). This is her bike--one of the many pastel-colored bikes you see around Rosemary, leaning against the Town Hall wall. I started this a few days ago and finished it this morning. It is painted in oil, and there is an ugly acrylic painting underneath. Any artists out there can relate to this "technique?" haha I love painting over a great underpainting. It allows for some great texture and scumbling, and it inspired me to stay loose!

Oil on canvas, 24x18, $400 plus $15 shipping SOLD
