Bicycling and the Country House


One thing I really love about summer is the opportunity to ride my bicycle in warm weather and sunshine. When I'm on my bike, I feel like a kid with wind in my hair. I find inspiration in the sites that I pass, often taking my camera along on my treks. Inspiration for this 8x10 inch painting arose from one of my treks. An old country house with the front yard planted in a big garden captured my attention. My quick snapshots provided great references for recreating the scene back in my studio. This painting can be purchased for $125.00 plus $12.00 for shipping to US addresses. Visiting my online gallery, Small Impressions, will give you an opportunity to put the painting in your shopping cart.

This is very inviting. I love the painterly aspects of it!
