Occasional ruminations concerning painted pages, hand bound books, the use of photos in journaling and the contemplation of various other pursuits.

The Man on a Bike

We were on a small ship cruise from Rhode Island to Chicago when we came upon this hard working guy in front of the art museum in Manitowoc, WI. Made of bronze, riding an old fashioned bike, he was going as fast as he could with coat tails flying in the wind.

I love the determination in his face....exerting energy, yet peaceful and wise. There is still far more showing in those eyes that intrigues me....I just cannot decipher the meaning.  What would he tell me if he could?

"Keep calm today as you endeavor to do that which must be done."

He is trying to get me to understand that and much more.

Painted pages,  Caran D'Ache water soluble wax pastels, photo
