Whimsical Bike Painting

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Colors of yellow, oranges and red are featured in this new whimsical bike painting. It’s a red mountain bike with an adventurous raven riding along through a colorful woodland. I use vivid blue to contrast with the orange around the tires to represent movement and energy.

I think this is a fun addition to my bike and raven series. I’ve titled it “A Wild and Wondrous Ride.” It is 12″ x 12″ and painted on a wood panel with black painted 1.5″ sides.

I like to show whimsy in my paintings by adding the little white details like the petals on the tires. This is a play on words as you pedal a bike.

Additionally, you can see a part of the title in my piece toward the bottom where it says WILD. If you look in some of my other bike paintings you will also notice a hidden word from the title.

The flag banner represents peace as I use the colors of prayer flags. It also represents fun and I like to add it in some of my bike paintings.

Purchase this painting as a gallery wrap canvas print in my Etsy Shop. You can also find it there as a fine art paper print.

You can see some of my other bike and raven paintings in my Etsy Shop as well.

Also, I list different sizes available but if you need a custom size, just send me an email and I can give you an estimate for cost and make you a custom listing.

Hope you enjoy this new artwork!

Mermaid Painting “She Carried the Light”

When I got hacked I lost my entire blog so this is a repost (modified) from April 2015.

I will admit it. I’m a weanie when it comes to swimming in big waves at the ocean so I don’t go in very deep when I see waves crashing. I’ve never been a strong swimmer. You might say I dabble in swimming. I have snorkeled a couple times and enjoyed it but I don’t have a deep desire to do it again.

Since I’m not a mermaid, I decided at least I could paint one.

“She Carried the Light”, acrylic on paper, 9″ x 9″

So here she is carrying the light through the depths of the deep blue sea.
