The name, “Poetry and Balance,” has a dual meaning. In the first meaning, “poetry” refers to the small wheel, which is elegant, expressive, and feminine to me; while the large wheel has a center rod which almost looks like it’s teetering, and trying to keep its “balance.”  The second meaning encompasses the whole concept of antique bicycles which are so beautiful, but not easy to ride.

I left my first cycling painting as is (and I still love it), but I just had to explore a version with lots of textural layers as I had originally intended. Both of them look great in my dining room, so maybe I’ll trade them out … until one or both get grabbed up!
