    Bicycle Art

    For lack of a better place, though I read through the groups and didn't find anything exactly right. So I thought why not here. My daughter sent me one of her drawings this morning.
    It's a duck. I liked it, hope you do too.

    Now there's somebody's dream avatar.

    What drawing program is she using? That's sure not MS Paint.

    That picture quacks me up, I hope that didn't ruffle your feathers.
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    A duck with a blue helmet, and toe straps. What's not to like? Thanks for sharing. I'm guessing your cycling has had some impact on her.

    First things first. She uses Gimp. She is 23, so not a kid. I think a parent at 100 would say "Hey look what my kid did!", even if that kid is 65.
    I'm amazed at how easy it is for her, creative with a little humor. I tried to draw things too perfectly and couldn't. She justs seems smoosh things
    around and comes out with acceptable work. She and her boyfriend come home late, eat everything in the house, sit and doodle to pass the time.
    I'd find it in the garbage in the morning, pick it out and save it. Some of it is extremely funny, and good . I guess they have other interests.
    It will be here for them someday.
    Thanks for your kind words.

    She may have a career at Colnago in her future?

    Nice... I like it a lot!

    Bicycle art?
    First photo: airbrushed desert scene on the boob tube (bottom bracket connecting tube) on our old Co-Motion tandem. Shows tandem, desert sunset, cacti and . . . if you look closely, a coyote.
    Second photo: utilizing chainrings for windchimes.
