This small box was painted for a very active fellow! I had a lot of fun painting just some of his favorite activities: Tennis! Golf! skiing! biking! Ballroom dancing!
This commission was painted as a gift for a young Mountain bike enthusiast. I used actual photos of him for the top of the wooden file box and for the speeding bike on the back face. Painting the motion in the speed shot was a fun new experience for me.
Now for something a little different. This wooden file box was another fun commission. My assignment was simply bicycles. Of course I wanted a variety of bikes! I put a sweet one with a basket of flowers on the top and a tandem bicycle on the front. On the sides I painted a high wheeled penny-farthing and a mid century bike. The unicycle on the back is in tribute to my two granddaughters who ride their unicycles with aplomb! The mint green and cream background stripes unify the whole piece.
