|Marion Buricatu, Fine Artist|
A fellow artist who is also a photographer gave me a picture of her pink bike, and asked me to do whatever inspired me with it, in September 2018. I have to say that I was particularly drawn to this vintage bike resting on this old wood fence; it definitely had a French flair. The background of the photo though was very different, and it took me several tries before I found what I wanted to do with it... several tries meaning several months!
Finally the inspiration came from my own yard, where the rose bushes were wonderful and a perfect fit for my background. A year after receiving the photo, in September 2019, I finally knew how to finish the painting. And this time, it only took me a few days!
