Commissioned by a friend, this piece reflects his requests to:
- Incorporate my daughter’s artwork
- Reflect a passion for cycling
- Incorporate the colors of his wife’s (admittedly gorgeous) bicycle
It was a blast. As usual, my biggest problem came from wondering when to put it down. Once, I left a drink to sweat next to it. The condensation smudged some of the original watercolor; nobody minded. Like the baskets woven of yore, the mistakes entered into the body of the whole.
So, why “RAGE?” I do not know. I know I had a better title at one point, but, like a lot of great ideas, it just vanished, leaving behind an emptiness and vague dissatisfaction. Hence… rage.
