What a wonderful composition! The subtle pattern of the bricks, the way the line on the sidewalk intersects the painting all add great interest. And of course, the shadows! Every one of the paintings in your bike series is fantastic!

Hi Virginia,
Thanks for your insightful comments. Yes, I really work on the composition of the bike/shadow pieces. That is probably the part that takes the most time and what I think makes them work. Utilizing negative space plays a big part in them. Nice to know you are seeing that! Thanks!:)
