Mid-Winter Moods | Original Cycling Art

with No Comments

Ten in a series.

Winter has given me the time to slow down on my bike but it seems I’ve picked up on my painting. Which I’m very happy about knowing what projects I have coming up in the very near future I’m trying to make the most of the time to explore.

Without a brush stroke on the lot of them I’m scraping paint across these little winter landscapes with a new found freedom of expression. I rather like the “box” using a square shaped tool puts me in when creating patterns on the page. I’m forced to rethink the scale of elements, placement and of course colors. Winter here in the midwest can be a dark and dreary business so the mood can be somber at times. I like to try and think of it as reflective time.

Dormant evergreens, dried marsh landscapes, pale blue shadows reflected on thin snow and ice a limited palette indeed. Big skies and distant horizon lines help me paint a mood much like winter on a bicycle.
