Here are two of the paintings that I submitted and were accepted into the Iowa Bicycle Festival. The third painting is really big, red-orange, with two turquoise bikes. It's time to package them up and ship them off, but I think I'll wait until after the St. Paul Art Crawl this weekend.

Packing for SPAC

Today in studio I am sorting, stacking and organizing the art and supplies to go to the St. Paul Art Crawl. There's so much to do!

Just look at all the lights I have to disassemble and pack!

studio pals.

my three newest and most favorite paintings.
for now.

Sweets is into everything.  
The drawers have been a particular learning challenge including the study of why not to push and pull simultaneously and what happens when you don't remover your finger or hand before pushing, sometimes repeatedly (testing theories and getting immediate results).  
Today he explored the bottom drawer and spent time figuring out the speaker jack.

Three new bike paintings.

Today I finished three new bike paintings for the upcoming art-a-whirl.
