A start-up Studio/Workshop specializing in Bike Themed Art

Downtown Ride

This recently completed project is something new for me. It’s the combination of a couple of elements to create a 3-Dimensional piece that is waiting to hear if it’s been accepted into a show in Plano, TX. Using an 8 x 10 Gessoed Panel with 2″ a frame, I wanted to depict an alleyway in downtown McKinney, TX. By applying lots of color to the exposed brick, along with streaks of shade striping the wall, I wanted to capture the viewers eye and create a lot of interest. Leaning on the wall is a hand carved bicycle, made of basswood. Notice how the shadows come thru on the bike as well. The last element is a platform that surrounds the base of the panel, painted to look like pavement, allowing the bike to have a resting place. One of several concept ideas that will have this combination of panel and wood carving.

According to - http://www.pbs.org/newshour/art/the-history-of-american-graffiti-from-subway-car-to-gallery/

The first modern graffiti writer is widely considered to be Cornbread, a high school student from Philadelphia, who in 1967 started tagging city walls to get the attention of a girl. But it was only in the 1980s that galleries began to showcase graffiti as artwork.

As far as what’s being predicted for our favorite Teams in the upcoming season…it doesn’t look good for the Rockies with a 5th place sub 500 record in the NL West. The Rangers, however, are being picked to go toe-to-toe with the Oakland A’s in the AL West. We’re just happy grapefruit games are right around the corner.
