Bicycle Art - Great Day

This is an appropriate painting for me today to announce to you
that I have reached "500" completed paintings since I began
posting my work online in September 2006! For some reason, that
number seems like a milestone, so I will pat myself on the back
today for a "job well done" : )
and thank YOU all for viewing!!!

"Great Day"
oil on 1.5" deep canvas

There is a sense of a job well done after a long ride
on a beautiful day. I wanted to capture that and the
feeling of freedom.
We often see the beauty of objects in their complete
form but sometimes we miss the beauty of its parts ~

Well done!

You're an amazing painter... which must mean you're an amazing person. Wouldn't know for sure, as I'm half way around the world, but I look for your daily painting every day.

Congratulations, and all the best!
