Self Portrait 01

"1st Bike Ride"

7x5 acrylic on canvas
$125 unframed plus $10 for shipping in the US to purchase

This is my first self portrait since college and that was about 18 years ago. You could also see my face in it.

This painting depicts the first time I took our dog Zephyr for a bike ride in New York City. He loved it and still loves bicycles, but he's no longer small enough to fit in a back pack. So now he goes running or swimming with me instead.

I felt a funny feeling when taking the picture for this posting, because I'm using the same camera to take the picture as the one I'm using in it. It was a little bit of a mirror effect in my mind. If only I was wearing that cycling helmet.
