Dave's 29'er - Bars 1
January 05, 2011
Oil, on canvas covered panel , 12 x 16"

Sometimes this bike leans
against my sheets of cardboard
and I love the colors.

I like the composition, I like the diagonal of the bars,
& the red bar tip with the shifter.
It looks like some kind of a bird.

I'm not 100% about the way that the brake lever crosses
the stack off the head tube,
compositionally it has so much other stuff going for it
I'll make it work.
