Ding! Ding!

Yipee! It was only a question of time before a bike would become the subject in one of my paintings. I had to celebrate because it has bought me so much enjoyment in the wonderful weather we have at the moment. A short while ago I bought a new bell which I love to ring whenever I can, next week I may treat myself to a new saddle.


  1. Hey, I love this. A self-portrait at last!!! It amuses me.

    Thanks for your visit to my blog and your kind words.

    I think you are on to something with these portraits.

  2. I had an inspiration this morning. Would you be able to paint my bicycle and me in this same manner from a photograph (for the likenesses of the bike and me)?

    Do you have an e-mail address so I can discuss it off line?

  3. Nice painting, John. (size?)

    Reminds me of some of the riders I see around my part of Texas, except here they leave a mist of perspiration trailing behind them from the heat!

  4. amazing watercolour! the characature is brilliantly emotional.. . nothing like when I go bike riding casually on a spring or summer day down a rural neighborhood

  5. John I LOVE THIS IS REALY INSPIRATIONAL AND BEAUTIFUL :) I see the sunny England is inpired you ;)
