Last Summer Ride

With fall coming at us at a crantastic speed, this piece is about that last summer bike ride. You know what I'm talking about!

I have been playing around with nibs lately and wanted to try to develop a piece with nib and brush. Gotta say, I really like the level of control I can get with these babies! Also trying a more direct approach to painting which I rather like.

Thank you! I Didn't intend this to be a self portrait but isn't there a saying about artists always inadvertently drawing themselves? Haha. I'm peached that you find me whimsical!
