One never knows what's just beyond or behind the fronds when scouting an island with a camera! This lonely rusting relic is tethered to a palm tree near the waters edge of Pine Island Sound. The actual setting has been only slightly altered by my brush. This piece is a study.
A 36" x 60" canvas sits on my easel where "My Fantasy Beach" is slowly developing in acrylic, and the old John Deere will again rest under a palm tree somewhere in the painting. This small study familiarized me with the character of the rusting seemingly forgotten bicycle. Wish we knew it's story and why faded silk (or plastic) roses are waiting in the basket ....for whom? We wonder...
