I’ve been painting this week for an art show I have next month. Here’s one I just finished this morning. Stripes were inspired by my Paul Smith socks.
Update: Some people have asked about prints for this painting, so I’ve just added it to the Zazzle store. You can buy prints in different sizes, with archival inks, on paper or even canvas. Here is the link. (The default size print is 31×23 inches, printed on matte paper with archival ink for $29.95.)
The original painting is 36X48 inches. Acrylic on canvas. For those in the Portland area, the art show is at the Daily Cafe in the Pearl. My art (6 paintings and one mobile) will be shown for the month of March. If anyone is interested in the reception details, give me an email.
Love the stripes! And can't wait for your book :)
Ah we too have those socks, you have captured them so well!
Toll! So einfach und so schÃ¶n!
This picture makes me smile! xxoo
Thanks everybody! Yeah, Paul Smith stripes are a happy thing!
And yes, it's my birthday! Thanks. 38 years!
j'aime beaucoup ce que vous faites et mon mari qui fait du vÃ©lo adore vos peinture de vÃ©lo.
j'Ã©spÃ¨re que vous parlez le franÃ§ais car je ne parle pas anglais… nous aimons faire vos bricolages avec les enfants, ils trouvent Ã§a gÃ©nial.
continuez, c'est super (it's wonderfull…)
Love it! Would love those socks, too. I have some kiddos who would live in a pair of socks that looked like that.
I would buy a print of this for our playroom. Or for the workshop in the garage where my husband works on his bike. It's fantastic!
Will you be selling prints? This is great :)
Oh, I like it very much! And you forgot about the chain at this bike ;)
Sweet! Where will the art show be? (Andra)
Thanks everybody! Prints are now available. I updated the post with the info!
Merci agnÃ¨s, trÃ¨s bon!
nina_bÅ‚Ä™kitna – Ha! Yes, this bike has a top of the line, invisible chain!
It's so beautiful, a little bit vintage! it makes me thinking of Jacques Tati's films!
Figliuluccia – Thanks for the nice compliment! I love vintage bicycles. I was looking at a British 1930 Norman bicycle when I painted this one.
