I am trying to save money and get myself in better shape. The bicycle is a perfect solution. I’m not wasting my money on gas…or the gym!
Monday, I had a meeting in Augusta (20 miles away), and the weather was in the high 40’s, so I packed my bags, and hit the road with a thermos of hot herbal tea and plenty of time to make the meeting…
While rolling up a hill, I made a mistake with my gears, and broke my chain. I have a repair kit, but never had to fix a chain. I wasn’t sure it went around the derailer, so I called my dad (a cycling maniac) who talked me through the process.
I ended up 5 minutes late for the meeting, but it was better than being stuck in traffic.
I’ve been doing some painting in the studio, and it’s time to put them in frames before showing them to the public for the first time.
If you didn’t know, I make my frames from scratch…they are handcrafted by the artist, just like the artwork they frame.
Here’s a sneak peek at one of the new paintings, if you want to see them, plan to visit my studio at the Pendleton Art Center (studio 400A)
FINAL FRIDAY – March 25- from 6-10pm or SECOND LOOK SATURDAY – March 26 from 11-3pm.
Also, don’t forget, I am giving a FREE printmaking workshop at the Ohio River Valley Artist Guild in Old Washington, Sunday the 13th of March from 2-4pm.
