FIRST I WENT FAST NOW I ENJOY THE RIDE
Acrylic, house paint, gouache on stretched canvas
This piece was a reaction to turning 35 in 2021. In my spare time, I ride an old motorcycle. When I visited the parts counter, one of the kind old hippies who works there said this to me - "First I went fast, then I went long, now man... now I just enjoy the ride". That stuck with me. I want to carry that intention of nothing to prove as I go forward in time as much as I can.
This piece is made with acrylic, gouache, and house paint on 20x16 stretched canvas.
