The Turkey that Made My Day

Riding my bike didn't sound like fun today, but I want to be fast, so I did it. In a sulky mood, I pedalled out to the hilly side roads around Scituate reservoir. Little did I know, a giant chocolate chip cookie would raise me from my slump.

I strictly adhere to a policy of ALWAYS stopping at children's lemonade stands. They stir nostalgia for my own entrepreneurial youth, and my enthusiasm for simple delights. The gumption of five girls to set one up on chilly day in early April (with cookies) earned my admiration, and a five dollar bill.

After I gulped my lemonade and rode away from the giggling girls, munching on my giant cookie, a huge wild turkey crossed my path! As a west coast girl, I am not accustomed to seeing wild turkeys, and I found this thrilling. My bad mood was vanquished.

New Work:

"your bicyclelife is wonderful"
March, 2008
silkscreen with glitter on paper
20" x 26"

I sent forty of these to the Artcrank Poster Show in Minneapolis. Billed as "a poster party for bike people," the opening is sure to be a good time, and an opportunity to buy affordable artwork.

Since printing the final color, gold glitter has infected my clothes, food, floor, boyfriend, cat, and bicycle.
