This is the third painting in the bike alley series. I’m having a ton of fun working out this composition. The series started this past spring with a painting for my Coming into View show at the Carol Robinson gallery. I followed up a few weeks ago with Bike Alley in the Fall and ended up with a more subdued light. I’m back to my long running sub theme of paradise doors in this installment. Each piece starts out with the same basic idea, but the colors take it away in different directions. This is the real joy of painting — exploration!
