Gonna squeeze one last one in right before the wire...or ball drops.

Someone posted this photo to VW Buses on Facebook.  I thought it would make a great painting.  So I needed a Christmas exchange gift for someone, so I whipped it out this morning.

Finishing up the last project of the year...

This one's been around for awhile.  Probably since mid summer I've had a partial sketch done.  It got put away when I got some commissions.  After I finished the last three cannondales I pulled this one back out.  I always wonder how to paint a flat color.  I think it came out well.

yes....more Cannondales...

Got a commission to do three...not one or two but three Cannondales for a customer.

Little side project...

I've been building up a fat bike the last few weeks.  I've been thinking about getting a custom top cap since I worked out it's name.  The Purple People Eater.  Here's a few of the rough sketches I did initially.

After researching the custom top cap I came up with these designs to fit into the constraints of there top cap template.  

Then I rendered a few of them in Photoshop...because...well it's what I do.

Sent the design away and got this little jewel in the mail...

CAAD for an Aussie

I got a hit off of one of the paintings I put up on Reddit.  A nice young lady from Australia wanted me to paint her SO's bike.  Here's what she got...

Coming and Going...Finally done.

I've been working on this one for sometime.  It's finally done to my liking.

Ya want it?  Here it is - Etsy listing for Coming or Going

Summer projects...

It's no secret that my art takes a hiatus during the summer.  Well not so much a hiatus but major slow down.  I've had one piece on my desk for some time.  It's still on my desk and moved aside for another project I'm doing.

I like the negative space is creates between the two bikes.  Can't wait to use my new water colors again.

Here's a project that always seems to be hard to finish up.  My Odin's Revenge bike.

Really like the way this one turned out.

I finally completed the Land Rover piece.

And last but not least the piece that's been waiting for completion.  I'm afraid it's going to have to wait for a bit.  As we are moving and that will take up a lot of my spare time.
So there you are.  All caught up.
