Bicycle Art

It was bison art last week, and bicycle art this week.

And I am working on another B project--must be a B kind of a month--maybe that has to do with all the basketball I have been watching (12 games in 4 days).  


Honestly, I can't wait to get my bike down and start riding.  I have plantar fasciitis going on and think the bike will be good for it.  In the meantime, I decided to paint a bike.

I painted scrap wood using my usual technique found HERE.  I decided to put a little frame around this using 1x2's.

I screwed these in through the back.  I should have painted them first, but was too impatient.

I used the chalk tranfer method I showed HERE with the bison art.   The bicycle is from the Graphics Fairy--I used it a few years ago to make THIS bike art.

The bike is fairly detailed--I used a small brush for the details like the spokes.

I painted the "frame" white, sanded a bit, and finished with clear wax.    I can't wait to get my granny, no speed bike out and cruise around the neighborhood.
