green bicycle

This painting (18"x24") is from 2008, which predates the blog, so I don't think I've posted it here. If so, I guess that means I just plain really love it. Still have the painting, a tribute to my beloved green bicycle. I ride most of the year but very rarely in the winter months, and it feels so good to finally be out riding again, around town or across the bridge. Along with acrylics I used clay paint; it was a sample can of zero-VOC house paint that dried to a hard matte finish on the canvas. It also seemed an appropriate medium for such an environmentally-friendly mode of transport.
