A Girl's Bike

oil on 6"x6" panel
     Remember how important your bike was when you were growing up? For me, it was escape and freedom. I can still feel the happiness of pedaling through the streets in my neighborhood and feeling the air moving past me. Up someone's driveway cut and then down off the curb with a thump. It was also very important that if you were a boy you had a boy bike - with the bar. If you were a girl - no bar and maybe pink! This painting is my entry to the Daily Paint Works weekly challenge. It was all about color this week. I used split-complementary colors, namely, red, turquoise and lime-green.
