On the Bike - NFS

"On the Bike", 6 x 6 In, Oil on Museum Board NFS
Back to the small paintings, this is from a photograph I took in a rural farming area of Northeastern China--a photo that I've looked at for a long time and wondered if I could make anything of it. So it was fun just going at it.



  1. Love all the muted, earthy colors, gestural brushwork and movement in this . . . very free and abstract.

  2. the way Motorcycle man pops so gently on the muted background. Just hit the perfect color combination! See...I know what works, I just have to learn to be able to do it. This is really good:)

  3. Thank you all for your comments! I really did enjoy painting this one!
