Red Door



11 x 14 Watercolor on CP300

I painted this from a photo I took downtown on the backside of restaurant in downtown Mobile, Alabama. I don't know what the front side is but the little silver thing on the door is a tortilla press or something refashioned into a knocker.

The bike is a purple Gitane, like I had as a youth. Mine was 10 speed. This is fixed gear. I didn't know they made fixed gears. Maybe it was refashioned too.

I won a merit award for this one in the Mobile Art Associations Fall Juried show, 2011.

This painting was recently accepted in the juried show, "Bike Art at the Dairy."

Wish me luck :)
