The Bicycle

Watercolour on Paper 8 1/2"  x 11"
After FOTOSIMILE photograph*

A belated birthday present for Ed's mom. And I can tell you that Ed, my coworker, is a patient person. He waited weeks for me to get this painting done. Sometimes the creative muse chooses her projects on her own time. 

The painting is gone now from my studio and living a life of its own. I yearn to have it back to fix up things I see lacking. Ah, the curse of an artist.

* Based on a shot from FOTOSIMILE, thank you to the photographer, beeveedee, for permission to use her photo as a source for my painting. Take a look at her clean, inspiring work. I enjoy the gallery-type setup of her blog that displays all her photos at once. 


  1. Ed's Mom is a lucky lady! Lovely Shelley.

  2. Shelley, this is a beautiful painting.

  3. thank you, Teresa. How did you find me?
