Our outdoor painting group “Vistas & Vineyards” has started up again with our annual trip to Garland Nursery in Corvallis, Oregon. There is always so much to choose from to paint here, but I settled on some pots of flowers and a steel bike “planter.” The temperature was cool but it felt great to be outside to paint again.

Drafting is a technique that cyclists use to lessen the effects of the wind.  If one rides directly behind or behind and slightly to the side, one can save a lot of energy.  I figure that this dog is doing it instinctively.

The Art Guild to which I am a member issued a challenge to express an image of downtown Corvallis on 2nd between Madison & Monroe.  Last week I went downtown.  There was a fiercely cold wind and I had a bunch of other errands to do so took only about four photos but I did see these bikes so my decision was easy.  We will be showing these paintings, drawings or other expressions at the meeting on Monday.

This painting is a submission for the Virtual Paint Out blog. Their area of concentration this month is Slovakia.  I thought I would add the link to the actual Google Street View scene that I used to show you what I did with the information.

Click here to see the actual place on Google Street View.  You can see that I used the bicycle, the basket, part of the man’s pose including his right arm and left leg and shoe.  I changed his sex.  I changed his left arm position as it looked like he was picking his nose, changed the package in the basket to a large dog and added a smaller dog looking at him.  I removed all the background including the second person except for a little of the curb.  I was trying for a little humor as the title of the painting hopefully suggests.
