Sunset Cruise

Bikes are fun

 We've been having some wonderful sunsets lately here in Key West.  The kind with giant pink clouds on the horizon that are always a favorite subject of mine.  I've been wanting to paint more of these iconic Key West beach cruisers, so I decided to combine the two. 

 Bikes like this are common all over the island.  No hand brakes and seat and tires that are a little wonky.  They often have a dog in the basket, but I gave this one some sunset colored flowers.

 Bikes are a great way to get around the island. And if you come for a visit they are super easy to rent.

September is a great time to visit Key West the crowds are gone and the water is still  warm.  If you are coming for a visit be sure and let me know
A great place to rent bikes is Eaton Bikes. It's right around the corner from my studio. I love that they have local artists painting "art bikes" for them.
