"My New Bike"

Oil  6"x8"  Canvas Board 

I've been painting exclusively with acrylics lately, but I've decided to try oils for awhile. I signed up for a plein air oil painting workshop in Minneapolis in June and, in order to get the most out of that intense week of painting, I need to get comfortable with oils again. There are things I like about acrylics but, after doing this little painting of my new bike, I'm thinking there are a lot of things I like about oils. This was fun!! and I can't wait to paint something else.


  1. Hi Connie, I love you new bike. It reminds me of an earlier one. The painting is so fun. Are you going to take in a Twins' game in June when you go for the workshop. Can't wait to hear more about it. Your pal, Cathy

  2. Hi Cathy,
    Thanks for your comments! I really had fun doing this little painting. It's just a plain, old-fashioned bells and whistles (except for the little bell I bought to put on the handlebar). And, about the Twins, wouldn't you know they're on the road that whole time I'll be in Minneapolis. What are the odds?! Hope you'll drop by my blog again when you have a minute.

  3. love it.. i do bikes but always add so much stuff around them......... Love yours..
