In my early twenties I was inspired to do a cross country tour after art school. Since then biking has always been a part of me. After studying the art of the Hudson River School and French impressionist, I was inspired by the long journeys they would take to do their art. So in the spirit of the Hudson River School and artist such as Bierdstadt and Monet, I decided to do my own journey. As an artist, making money is not an easy thing, let alone saving money to put together a touring bike studio. But I saved a couple thousand and put together what I dreamed of. But now it has been robed from me in plane daylight locked up twenty feet away from me.
I wish to continue to bike and paint and make my art. Biking helps clear my mind, keep my body strong. It is also good for the planet and is a great way to explore views and scenes to paint. I would love the help if you feel or wish to help me get my touring bike back together. Any donation or help would be very greatful. I biked from Dayton Ohio to Lansing Michigan and have been making art and "en plein air" painting. I wish to continue my journeys and my work. Thank you for reading this and any donations you give. I'm asking for $2,000 compared to the original $1,700 so I can buy NY grade bike locks to prevent future theft.
I'm also willing to trade art for donations as well. I can supply signed prints for donations under a $100 or I have original paintings starting out at $200 to $300 if someone wishes to buy something rather then make a straight forward donation.
Thanks and best wishes,
